Noisy belly and no hunger

My 8 months old dog is having loud gurgling coming from his stomach and he is not eating. When should I be concerned and take him yo the vet?

Hi and thank you for your question to FirstVet.


Poor appetite and rumbling stomach are often due to a gastrointestinal imbalance and can cause both vomiting and diarrhea. Some dogs become very ill and need medical treatment, while other mild cases can be treated at home with a diet and probiotic.

In this case, I would recommend that you book an appointment for a video consultation so that we can take a closer look at the problem and assess the best treatment.


I must point out that this Q&A service is not suitable for urgent questions, as it may take a few days before you receive an answer. In these cases, you should instead book a video consultation with one of our veterinarians or contact the veterinary clinic.
