Hello, my name is***** and I will do my best to help you. I'm reviewing your question now and I will post back to you ASAP.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 2 months ago.

When you rub it does Midas show any discomfort?

Is it related to eating? Perhaps a few hours after?

Is he passing a lot of gas?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 2 months ago.

I hope that you log on soon so that I can help you. There are very many, many reseasons for abdominal distention. I'd like to do a systematic elimination of causes.

Therefore I do have to ask lots of questions and it is important that you answer every one.

I have to leave for about 20 minutes but I shall return.

he likes it when i rub it, and he is passing gas but not 'a lot'... the firmness seems to be perpetual. i just got back from a trip and my mom was watching him. his belly seemed firmer to me than usual.

Is Midas overweight? What breed is he and how much does he weigh?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 2 months ago.

I'm going to opt out so that an expert closer to your time zone can assist you. I am in Hawaii where it is 4:30 pm now. Your reply came in at 4:54 am this morning. I think that we will keep missing each other.
