thank you for the information. In general when a dog's stomach is bloated we do get a little concerned about excessive gas, distention of the stomach or other issues that may be causing some discomfort or pain. We also get concerned about possible ingestion of unusual things especially dogs that are young. My advice to you would be to monitor his symptoms and ensure that he is not showing any signs of pain or distress. Make sure that his gum color is nice and pink and that he is breathing normally. There is a possibility that by tomorrow or the next day the bloating could resolve; it may just be a 24 to 48 hour issue or less. If it does not resolve and he does start to show signs of pain or discomfort, then you should absolutely take him in for an exam.
