i think im becoming paranoid :-\
last year at the start of stans tummy probs he started doing a funny glurgling sound, then he didnt do it for a while.
last week he started doing the glurgling sounds again and every now and then he will do a funny sucking in through his teeth type thing
now im worried because Mattie used to do the funny sucking air through his teeth thing (or similaire) so im getting a little paranoide now.
any ideas as to what it may be?January 26, 2009 at 8:36 pm #85925

no idea sorry kerrie :-\January 26, 2009 at 8:47 pm #85927
Sounds like he has wind 😉
Does he bolt his food or eat more steadily?
If he bolts it as fast as he can then he will swallow more air, does he fart a lot ;D
You can buy special bowls to slow them down while eatingJanuary 27, 2009 at 10:45 am #85928kendalMember
i wouldn’t worry to much about the tummy gurgling, my girls get that some time. it did freaked me out when i first heard it. but they don’t get the runs or anything so im not concerned
when you say he sucks through his teeth is this when he is sleeping and both Inca and Echo suckle in their sleep. i think they are just dreaming.January 27, 2009 at 5:31 pm #85929
its not his tummy thats glurgling (well sometimes 🙂 ) its like hes making the noise in the back of his throught, almost like he is trying to hack something back up, also sometimes when he swallows as he swallows his head jerks
if that makes senceJanuary 27, 2009 at 5:56 pm #85930kendalMember
oh OK then. dose it happen when he is eating or after or just randomly. what about if he has been running about.January 27, 2009 at 6:03 pm #85931
he does do it after meals but he sometimes does it other timesJanuary 27, 2009 at 11:17 pm #85932
Have you checked his throat?
Has he chewed anything he shouldn’t?
Any other symptoms ???January 28, 2009 at 1:00 pm #85933
have checked his mouth and throught, hasnt eaten anything he should (at least im sure he hasnt) and it comes and goes he doesnt have/do it all the time. he was doing it more when he was having eating bones, at the moment he is only having marrow bones and isnt doing it very much
could it have been the eating bones?January 28, 2009 at 4:39 pm #85934
Could be little fragments of bone, as he chews small bits stick to his mouth and throat ???
Perhaps Val will have an idea what’s causing it 😉February 15, 2009 at 10:57 am #85935
stan is walfing down his food and i think that is what is causing his funny gurgling thing, ive been mixing lots of water with his food so its more like slop and he has been ok (hes had to eat it slowly) but is there any thing els i can do to stop him from walfing his food downFebruary 15, 2009 at 11:24 am #85936dogloverwoooo!Member
you could try:
Scatter it on the lawn/patio
Seperate it into smaller sections (small bits at a time)
Stuff it in a KongFebruary 15, 2009 at 1:19 pm #85937
Stick a large stone in his bowl so he has to eat round it or you can buy special bowlsFebruary 15, 2009 at 9:36 pm #85938AnonymousGuest
I had a brake fast bowl and have to say it was really good! Quite pricey. We had to get it as Ollie would finish his food in about 15 seconds! Used to add water before that and that worked until he got used to it!
He soon stopped bolting when using the bowl and we no longer use it now! Friemd of mine is trying it but if it doesnt work i’ll gladly send it to you for a try out.
