My foster, Kai, has suddenly develped a very gurgly tummy in the mornings. He's been here for months and never had this until about a week or so ago. I'd like to give him something to help settle the stomach down. What have you used that worked?

 

Thanks!

Slippery elm bark. It's very soothing to the GI tract and because it's not an antacid, won't trigger the production of more stomach acid like Pepcid can.

Pepcid is actually a little different than some of the older antacids. You wouldn't see a rebound increase in stomach acid after Pepcid is withdrawn -- it acts on acid-producing cells rather than on the stomach contents. IIRC Zantac falls into the same category.

 

But, I would ask, does pup seem to feel unwell or is stomach just noisy? You can get some noise from hunger, slurping water, gobbling food, food that basically agrees but maybe produces some extra gas, etc.
