I came home and now my dogs stomach is making loud growling

Customer Question

Hello I came home and for hours now my dogs stomach is making loud growling noises.. Her nose is dry as well. She seems to be acting normal but I never heard this come from her before. I don't feed her anything but dog food.

Hi there. It sounds like she may have a little bit of gastrointestinal upset, but I'm really glad she doesn't seem to feel sick. I'd recommend a bland diet for a few days as well as Pepcid AC (famotidine) twice daily for 5 days- how much does she weigh?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
She weighs maybe 10 pounds.

At 10#, her Pepcid AC dose would be 2.5 mg (which is 1/4 of a 10 mg tablet) every 12 hours for 5 days. Hope that helps and please let me know if you have any other questions- Dr. C
