My bichon is stretching uncomfortable. I have gas x but it's a soft gel 125mg. What can I do until I get her to our vet at 7am? Can I split the soft gel or should I give her the whole?her gums are moist and pink. Yesterday - not her usual poop.

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available (hence the delay in the question being open for me). Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Are you hearing a lot of gas in her gut?
How much does she weigh?
If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
Was the Trident one with xylitol?

I just got off the phone with our ER. She's uncomfortable but not throwing up. I'm going to try and hold off until 7am when I think the vet office opens. And yes, I believe it was trident peppermint sugarless....

I don't think this is helping. I'll try to wait the hour or just take her in ER
