Bloating in Dogs

Bloating Remedies - GastronicBloating in Dogs

While humans suffer from bloating quite regularly, and it generally causes no major long term health concerns, the same cannot be said for bloating in dogs.  Bloating in dogs can be a serious condition that requires urgent medical treatment for the dog.  While the term is often shorted to “bloat” it refers to two distinctive conditions.  Below are the two main causes of bloating in dogs and available treatment options.

Gastric dilation

In this condition poor Fido’s stomach distends and then fills with gas and fluid.  This causes the dog significant pain and requires medical treatment to remove the gas and fluids.  It’s painful for the dog.  This condition is sometimes present by itself, but can also be related to the second condition Volvulus.

Volvulus

Volvulus refers to the twisting of the stomach between 180 and 360 degrees.  When this happens there is no way of fluid or gases being released from the stomach.  The dog can’t burp, pass wind or even vomit.  The longer the condition lasts, the more fermenting that takes place, and the worst the condition becomes.

This leads to more severe problems such as dehydration, septicemia, gastric perforation and even cardiac arrhythmias.  Medical treatment is required urgently to fix the stomach and save the dogs life.

What are the symptoms of bloating in dogs?

The condition can develop suddenly.  An otherwise healthy dog can quickly become critical even if they just went for a run or ate a meal.  There are a range of symptoms to look out for.  The most common symptoms are detailed below:

  • Restlessness and pacing: The first sign you may notice – even before the bloating occurs – is that the dog is restless and pacing.  This shows that they are uncomfortable and that there is a problem.
  • Unable to vomit:  The next sign you will notice is that the dog is trying to vomit but is unable to.  This again shows that there is a buildup of gas or fluid that the dog is not able to release.  If you notice this then call a vet straight away.
  • Pain when touching the dog’s belly:  If the dog whines in pain when you touch their belly then this is another warning sign.  Often you will hear a hollow sound when touching the belly.  Again, call a vet straight away.
  • Tightness and pressure: From a physical examination you will be able to feel tightness in the dog’s stomach and abdomen.  In some cases this won’t be identifiable at the start and the dog may seem happy and not under stress.  However this can change quickly.

Treatment options

As detailed above, if a dog displays any of the symptoms above then they need to be taken to a vet straight away.  The most common treatment is to first pass a tube through the dog’s mouth into its stomach.  Often a rush of air is heard as the tube enters the stomach.  This usually brings instant relief.  The dog is then monitored for the next two days and only feed through a drip.

If the dog is suffering from volvulus then emergency surgery is required.  The goal is to move the stomach and spleen back into place, and to remove any part of the stomach or spleen that has suffered from necrosis.  Often an X-Ray is undertaken first to ascertain how badly turned the stomach may be.

In most cases the dog will recover from the incident.  However, the dog will always be more susceptible for further occurrences.  Therefore changes in diet and lifestyle need to be made.  Smaller more regular meals are considered a good option to help avoid this condition.

What is the best type of midol?

Yes. That time of the month is simply unbearable for me. I’ve tried lots of things, but everyone says Midol works the best. I noticed there were many different kind of it :
Midol PM
Midol Teen ( I’m 17 so I’m not sure if I want that )
Midol Complete
Midol Extended relief
and Midol Liquid Gels

I was just curious as to what people like the best? Especially for cramps and bloating.

Is dark green diarrhea and stomach pain associated with Trazodone?

I went to the doctor last week, and she prescribed me Trazodone to help me sleep. It wasn’t until just a few days ago I started having stomach pain, like someone was stabbing me, and dark green diarrhea, 99% liquid. I looked at different websites and haven’t been able to link the two, so I was wondering if anyone would know?

Is there a specific part of the stomach that Mobic causes pain, or is it generalized?

I started taking Mobic last Monday. I am now having severe stomach pain, but I’m not sure whether or not to worry, as I have stomach issues seperate from all of this. (And at that, I am not sure whether I would call my gastro doctor or my neurologist?) Anything would be helpful, thank you.

My period is late, but I’m not pregnant. What’s wrong with me, and how do I fix it?

I feel the cramping and bloating associated with menstruation, but I’m constantly nauseous. Sometimes the urge to vomit gets so intense that I feel like I need to run to the bathroom, but I never vomit. It’s frustrating. I’ve been told that it is very likely stress-related, but no one has given me a solution yet. All I want to know is how I can “make it start” again. I have to say that I’ve never wanted to get my period before, but this time I would be glad of the relief…

I’m twenty years old. I’ve been noticing the feeling since early Monday morning. It’s not a long time, but long enough for me to be concerned. I’m going to take a pregnancy test at some point this weekend just to make doubly sure that I’m not, but I spoke with a friend over the phone (who is studying to be a doctor) and she said that my symptoms don’t sound like a typical pregnancy. She said to call her back in two weeks if I still hadn’t gotten my period, or if the symptoms persisted or got worse. She hasn’t gone very far in med school, though, so I wanted a few more opinions from people who may have had the same problem.
I took a test tonight and the results were negative, so that rules that possibility out. The nausea, however, is getting worse because no matter what I do my period won’t start. I’ve done everything I can to relax my muscles and I bled a tiny bit just once, but that’s it. I don’t know what to do. It’s almost unbearable at this point. Someone please advise me.

uti bloating and cramps won’t go away?

the doctor gave me bactium, which is a sulfer based drug and i’m already on day 5 and still feeling no relief from my uti whatsoever. i’m so bloated, can’t suck in my stomach at all and just so frustrated that i’ve been like this for 6 weeks, going on 7, morning, noon, and night.

i’m going back to the doctor tonight but does anyone have any idea what else i can do or what’s else could be going on here?

Should I get the regular midol or teen?

I’m thinking about trying midol for the first time. I’m 16. I like how the complete midol promises relief from all the symptoms, but some people are saying that the caffeine makes them jittery/unable to sleep. Would I be better off getting the teen version? My main problems are lower back pain, cramps, bloating, and sometimes headache. I’m worried that the caffeine will make me crazy. What do you think? Experiences?

Diverticulitis Video Testimonial by Irene

Many people have small pouches in their colons that bulge outward through weak spots, like an inner tube that pokes through weak places in a tire. Each pouch is called a diverticulum. Pouches (plural) are called diverticula. The condition of having diverticula is called diverticulosis. About 10 percent of Americans over the age of 40 have diverticulosis. The condition becomes more common as people age. About half of all people over the age of 60 have diverticulosis. When the pouches become infected or inflamed, the condition is called diverticulitis. This happens in 10 to 25 percent of people with diverticulosis. Diverticulosis and diverticulitis are also called diverticular disease. Most people with diverticulosis do not have any discomfort or symptoms. However, symptoms may include mild cramps, bloating, and constipation. Other diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and stomach ulcers cause similar problems, so these symptoms do not always mean a person has diverticulosis. You should visit your doctor if you have these troubling symptoms. The most common symptom of diverticulitis is abdominal pain. The most common sign is tenderness around the left side of the lower abdomen. If infection is the cause, fever, nausea, vomiting, chills, cramping, and constipation may occur as well. The severity of symptoms depends on the extent of the infection and complications. Although not proven, the dominant theory is that a low-fiber diet is the main cause of diverticular

Stomach pain while going to the bathroom?

This is an embarrassing problem but I need to know if I should go to the doctor. Just before I have to go to the bathroom I have abdominal pain and it continues after I’m done for a while. It hurts really bad. Most of the time my stool is different colors and I have seen blood in the stool. Most of the time it seems like an upset stomach but it has been going on for a few months. I’ve tried taking Fiber tablets and drinking more water to see if it helps but it hasn’t. Do I need to go to the Doctor?
