My dog Max is 5 years old. 100 lbs. He is normally very playful and still is. about twice a week now, he wakes up in the middle of the nite and his belly is making all kinds of noises. he used to act like he was going to puke and sometimes did. last few times he just wakes up and wont go back to sleep. then the next morning he wont eat. will eat later. i am very worried about him. however dont have alot of extra money for tests that might not show anything. have talked to vet and they told me to try pepcid??? this has been going on for awhile so i dont think it is gastric torsion.
My westie had the belly growl all the time. They put her on spastabs all her life until they stopped making it and then they told me about pepcid but it didnt work so the vet then told me to give her Centrine twice a day and it took a while but it worked. I sure wish I could hear her belly growl now. She passed away on December 27th in my sons arms and it has been the worst time in my life. I really wish that I could have died with her because I feel like I died anyway without her. Don't worry she had the belly growls from a puppy and was going to be 14 when she died from cancer. But if you can find a vet that has spastabs that really did the trick. She would eat about an hour after I gave it to her. The centrine worked but it was not as fast. Good luck with her belly.
Thankyou so much for your reply. I will investigate. Also, I am so sorry for you loss. It is heartbreaking when you loose your pet - best friend. Before we got Max, we had Bruno who passed away at age 7. It was one of the hardest times Ive been thru. Take care and thankyou again. :)
