Thread: Advice Please... Floyd's Tummy

    Default Advice Please... Floyd's Tummy

    Advice please...

    Floyd's tummy has been making some loud gurgling rumbles tonight.. i mean its loud, sounds like a bath tub draining out. I have been rubbing he's tummy to try to settle the rumble, he did pass some wind that wasn't to smelly.

    He is quiet more than normal & he did'nt eat dinner (which is very abnormal for him), he did 1 small blackish soft poop today ( but its not unusual for roo meat to give him blackish poos). I haven't notice him eat anything other than he's own food/ breakfast, gum's are nicely pink, no fever or lethargy etc, no ticks or insect bites that i can see.

    So is it not unusual for dog's tummies to rumble loudly ????????

    Should i be deeply concerned & contact emergency vet now & just keep on rubbing he's belly to help ease the wind ???

    Thanks in advance for your advice etc

    You could try putting a nice big spoon full of honey in his water AF. May help settle it a bit.

    He might just have a little stomach wobble like we get. I would keep rubbing his tummy and he is most likely enjoying it!
    I would though watch each poo he has or whether he poos enough.
    Ralph would sometimes be off his food in the past and have a bit of a windy tummy and the symptoms would be gone next day.
    Years ago though he did end up with impacted bowel (very bad constipations) and had to have several enemas!
    With that the symptom is they go to do poo and can't and make a strange noise, he sounded like a chicken scawking!

    I would not be too concerned right now, But I am also in the habit of ringing my Vet for advice if worried...

    I'm a fan of "sulphur & lard". Not everyone's cup of tea for a home remedy, but I've had great success with it.

    I too would be on watch and wait for tonight unless signs of distress set in.

    Sulphur powder .... from any chemist. I pay about $5 for a kilo, but it doesn't go "off", so I've always got it on hand. Lard ... from any supermarket. It's very cheap.

    Gradually mix sulphur & lard into a paste. Don't get too concerned about consistency etc. It's not an exact science. I usually have to make enough for 3 dogs even if only 1 is "off colour" because they all dash from out of nowhere when they know I'm mixing it.

    For a Sheppie, I give about a heaped dessertspoon of the mix per dose. Give a dose morning & night for 3 days. Then wait ...... They'll usually expel whatever's bothering them out either end. I can only speak for my own experience, but it works for me every time.
