Customer Question

My 6 year old lad/mastiff mix has terrible sounds coming from his stomach. He does t want a treat. The noise is so loud you can hear it across the room and has been going on for the past few hours. Should I take him to the emergency vet? He is sleeping now

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Does it sound like gas or grumbling?

Does he look distended?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or grass eating? Any vomiting?

Was he able to keep that treat down?

Any chance he could have eaten something non-edible or harmful?
