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 wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me: What pain relief was she sent home on specifically?Did her vet determine where she was sore?Are you hearing any increased gut noise?Did her vet think the gas present was excessive or distending her gut?
