Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Does he seem uncomfortable when his tummy is gurgling? How long does it last for? What is he eating?
Okay thanks for the additional information. If the gurgling only lasts for a 1/2 hour then that may be normal for him. The gurgling you may be hearing is a combination of the gas and the movement of the intestines while the food is digesting. Since puppies as young as 7 weeks of age may still be adjusting to a solid food diet they tend to be more gassy than older dogs. As long as he seems to be comfortable and his stomach is not distending too much he should be okay.
Let me know if you have any further questions or concerns
