Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I cannot make a diagnosis over the internet, but I can give you some advice and help you with your dog. Have you noticed any vomiting or diarrhea with Buster?

Okay, with the bad gas, I worry about some gastroenteritis. I would recommend feeding him a bland diet of boiled chicken and white rice for the next few days, as well as some some Pepto Bismol to help settle his stomach. About how much does Buster weigh?

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Schmidt, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Ok, I would start with 2 tsp of Pepto Bismol and see if that doesn't help with his gas. It might be some gas pain from gastroenteritis. If he has any diarrhea to follow, you can give him some Metamucil (1 capsule twice a day). If he starts vomiting, I would recommend taking him in for an xray. A lot of dogs will perk up with the Pepto Bismol and chicken and rice, but if he continues to act lethargic, you might consider taking him to the vet to be checked out in person.
