I am sorry that you have been waiting for a response. I recently just logged onto the site and noted that your question hasn't yet been answered. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years’ experience and would be happy work with you if you are still needing assistance.
Hopefully by now he is feeling a little better. Is he eating and having normal bowel movements?
Has there been any change since your original post?
Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
Thank you for the reply. Many cats with pancreatic disease will also have inflammed bowels as well which can lead to all sorts of symptoms, including bloating. There is no harm in using a human gas product like Gas-X as it is very safe and not absorbed into the bloodstream, but mainly acts in the gut itself. The average cat would take a 50 mg dose two to three times a day with meals.
Make sure to report this to your vet as they may want to make an adjustment in his meds or diet.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.
