    Default gurgling stomach !!

    hi all, just hoping someone can give me some quick advice... rubys stomach is making very strange gurgling noises .. loud and long and its sounds like she has a cat in there!!!!!!!!!!!!! shes had 2 bouts of colitisand has only just got over one so am hoping its not that. im pretty sure shes not eaten anything bad and shes had no treats lately ( shes on burns dry food) weve been out today and shes had a normal poo (sorry) and she was as active as usual but the noises are still coming. is there anything i can give her to settle it down , and is this something that may pass without turning nasty ? thanks for any help ..

    It could go either way. It is often the sound I hear before colitis or gastroenteritis. I'd not feed her for 24 hours. If you have a dog prone to colitis it is worth getting as tube of Prokolin or similar -- I find this really settles their stomachs and can prevent things worsening. Most vets have it and it is non prescription. It is generally a bit cheaper online.

    When Jasper had colitis a few weeks ago he had a very loud gurling tummy (he had never had colitis before so did not know what to expect), anyway a trip to the vets and one of the medications we came home with was Pro Kolin, I had never heard of it before, but after a bit of research I bought some on line and a lot cheaper to , so that is now in my store cupboard - have already used it once when my puppy had a bit of a tummy upet. Hope Ruby is better soon.

    My Rylie's stomach gurgles when he has an upset. I learned the hard way (by withholding food) that when that happens I need to feed him - preferably small amounts at frequent intervals or he will start vomiting as well as having the runs. I "think" we have found the source of the worst of his upsets (he can't eat beef) but I also found that having him on a probiotic has done wonders.

    I have found that the gurgling can be a forerunner to a stomach upset.
    I too would give pro-kolin and also small fairly bland meals ( Denes Senior Chicken Lamb and Rice works for me )

    If such a dog is at all reluctant to eat then I would not encourage them.
