Unhappy noisy tummy!!

My Basset Hound Barney has had a couple of bouts of a VERY noisy tummy which he tries to run away from! This is just not usual digestive noise and it really frightens him. Has anyone had this?

Hubert's tummy is the worst!! Always so loud after he eats, sometimes Hubert gets mad because if he is lying down with Eeyore, Eeyore will try to attack the noises.

As the Basset is prone to GDV (bloat, with torsion if you're unlucky), any gassy rumbling needs to be sorted out, and fast. Something about his diet isn't suiting so although you might try adding a little natural yogurt to the mix, I'd find something else that stops all this.

For reference, always feed an adult Basset two smaller meals a day (obviously more if this is a puppy), don't allow loads of water to be taken on at the same time (if necessary moisten the food before feeding), and don't feed for an hour after exercise, or exercise for 2 hours after feeding. Standard anti-bloat care although despite all that, we've had 4 cases over the years.

Our old guy Beau recently had a bout of rumbling guts and it was a precursor to him vomiting.

Doc had the same noisy stomach.. always throwing up when I first adopted him. He has been on "GENTLE GIANTS" dog food and he seems to be ok now. He has not thrown up since starting him on the food.
Thank God...

Frank's Mum said it. That ping ping of tummies can be a problem. My Lula gets that occasionally since she had an op on her belly she's 14. The best thing is give a big spoonful of natural yoghurt and keep him calm and close- gently rub his tummy and hopefully he'll burp. There are drugs that calm it - we always have Zantac but usually the yoghurt and calming sorts it out.
To add a dog that needs to vomit is usually quite quick about it and they vomit.

I certainly hope bloat is not the issue. We have been lucky not to deal with that. However, lately, Jake has been having some silent but deadly gas. Bad enough I had to open windows when it is freezing out! No change in diet... Not to hijack the thread, but any ideas... he is KILLING us!

My Vet has recommended charcoal tablets before a meal. Going to give it a try.
