No, he is not vomitting. And his bowel movements seem normal.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
My sister pressed on him a bit and he expelled some gas.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
But, he's still pretty bloated.

So, there are several things that can cause bloating in a 10 year old dog....Cushings disease, gas, abdominal tumors in the GI tract.....and fluid from heart problems...
