CANINE BLOAT: need to treat gas to be expelled quicklyHello, I have a 2.5 lb yorkie that is experiencing bloat (enormous amount of painful gas trapped in stomach, torsion of stomach in fatal cases). She seems to get it when she is excited and exerting herself, especially hot walks and is also consuming water and barking (she is quit excitable). The vet recommended simethicone, but for small animals, this can cause gas bubbles to amalgamate and stay trapped, the opposite of what we want to happen. I have looked at activated charcoal as well as some homeopathic remedies, but would like a second opinion or 2 on what absorbs/ moves gas the quickest. Thank you for any suggestions!
