Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Borborygymus (that growling sound) and anorexia are important signs but they aren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one disorder in dogs. A 3 month old may simply need to be wormed or Benji might be breaking with life-threatening parvovirus. To begin with, please tell me if Benji has been vaccinated yet and, if so, at what age(s) and how many vaccines have been given. Also, please tell me if he's been wormed and, if so, when and with what product.
