Default Stomach noises?

Our 4 year old female was diagnosed about a month ago with Pancreatitis. She would not stop vomiting (mostly bile, and foam) and was hospitalized for a day with IVs and antibiotics. We switched her food to a lower fat food and so far she's been better.

However she always has these stomach noises. They are loud. Its like when we have hunger pains-except she won't eat. Sometimes we see her eating grass outside. What could these noises be?

Beckham's stomach does that if we force him to sleep in and we feed him later than usual (only Saturdays). *Usually if his stomach is really loud and noisy he'll refuse to eat. *We were told to give him a dose of pepto (B is close to 50lbs and we give him about 1/2 Tbsp) to settle his stomach and once that takes effect he's starving.
Not sure if your girl also refuses to eat when her tummy is upset; but that's what works for us.

So your vet approved pepto for their bellys? I know my mom uses it on her shitzhu but I never have used it for Brindle. She's also about 50lbs give or take.

This happens about once or twice a week. I'm not sure why. We just constantly will hear her stomach rolling and she always acts 'upset'. I might try that. Thanks!

Also a lot of times dogs will eat grass to relieve the discomfort of their bellies There's a Sticky topic in the Health section about dosages for Boxers, I believe it's called Medicine kit, read thru that

My Boxer had chronic pancreatitis. *It was trial and error with new low fat food, foods with soy caused more gas. *Also dogs in pain tend to pant more and increase the air intake. *So glad that you made it through the crisis, but its a *terrible worry. *We found many ultrasounds were difficult to read because of the amount of gas involved with the pancreatitis. *If your vet is familiar with the use of Gas-X you might ask. *It helped with the discomfort with mine and even comes in small doses for children's use. *Feeding 4 to 5 times a day with a handful of kibble at bedtime seemed to help. *Also rubbing his back, and belly, and walking helped relieve the problem. *I think Boxers have many stomach rumbles, but with the other health problems, and the pain that might be associated with it (or nausea) it's a different picture. *You can contact me PM, I moderate on a pancreatitis list, and would be happy to share my experiences.
