Customer Question

My friends dog has a bloated stomach which is very hard. But he is acting happy and drinking just fine. My friend thinks it's bloat and I'm trying to calm him down and assure him we don't need that just yet.

Has Goliath done any vomiting or problems defecating?

Is he still eating/drinking normally?

Has he had any new foods or treats?

Does he act painful when you're rubbing his belly?

Does he ever eat non food items such as socks, towels, etc?

How long has this been going on?
