Sweetpea used to get a gurgly gassy tummy, and wouldn't eat.

I tried pepcid to calm it down so she'd eat.

Now I use bits of bread soaked in pepto bismol, but since I've got her

on food that agrees with her, we don't need to do this nearly as often.

(Maybe once a quarter, if that)

I wouldn't use it. I'm not convinced the 'gurgly tummy' that affects some dogs is at all the same as human indigestion. The gurgles sort themselves out in a day or so.

We give it to Kelsey because she has symptoms of colitis. Our vet agreed with us a couple of years ago to treat her symptomatically rather than put her through an endoscopy, but her symptoms of not only a "gurgly" stomach but also of diarrhea (sometimes bloody and with mucus) pointed pretty solidly toward colitis. Giving her Pepcid 20 mgs. twice daily has really helped. I agree that I would never give it to a pup for just gas sounds.
