Poor Jenny has big time tummy gurgles.  She must be quite uncomfortable as she did not eat breakfast for the first time ever. 

Anything I can safely give her to release the gas?

Lord, I hope this is not hookworm!!!

My go-to for gurgles is Gas-X.  We use the gel cap. I doubt there's any xylitol in them (vs the dissolvable kind) but always check.

Gas-x is good.  You can also give a pepcid (or generic) about 20 minutes before mealtimes to help with them.  And I would definitely check for hooks before trying other solutions.

let's NOT think hookworms- how about some grass that she ate!  i vote for pecid ac, start probiotics and rice/ground turkey- boil the turkey pour over the rice and keep her on this for a tad. then slowly add kibble. dogs pick up strange stuff eating grass.  

if she is still gurgles in a couple of days, then a quick check at the vet. let's hope plain old fashioned stomach bug. i can understand your near panic.

regular hook worms are treatable- our new girl had them, 2 negative readings since treatment- but there was a positive for giardiasis which we managed to get a negative reading for after treatment. i was totally shocked.

Thanks to all for your advice. I ended up giving her a Beano tablet (vet approved) that I had on hand. No more gurgles. I’m thinking maybe she was given ‘people food’ by our guests on Christmas Eve which she is not used too. Regardless, I’m requesting a fecal when we go to the vet on Tuesday for a previously scheduled appointment.
