    Thank you! I was so scared but I'm so happy it seems to just be lots of gas. He is tooting some so that is good. I worry so much about him so I'll probably check his tummy 1000 times today! 😊 But I am so happy he is home!!! He is laying on my pillow next to my head. ❤️

    Hi, just reading this post this morning, I'm so glad that Rigins is okay, and back home with you. Hoping he continues to improve and is back to himself soon. Also want to wish Riggins a happy birthday, hope you have a great day buddy, and feel better so you can enjoy your birthday.

    Im so sorry for the loss of your two Boston Terrier babies, they really do take a piece of our hearts with them when they go, and leave a paw print on our hearts as well.

    [QUOTE=Rigginsluv11;493517]Thank you so much everyone! Riggins is home with me!! I just picked him up. The bloating has gone down some and the X-ray was better as well.  The dr said that I need to give him gas-x with his food. I'm also going to feed him in smaller meals during the day. The dr wasn't sure exactly why he ended up with all that gas in his tummy. He did say that Rigs was full of food. He had eaten 4 1/2 hours before the X-ray so he shouldn't have been so full. After talking to the dr, we decided that we are going to slowly transition him back his old Fromm food from the Canidae he is now on. The pieces are smaller for him to digest and he didn't have these gas issues while on Fromm. They did tell me that I did the right thing by calling them and rushing him in. Based on the drs initial exam, he really thought he had bloat and not just terrible gas. He said time is of the essence when it comes to possible bloat so never question it. Get your bullie checked just to be safe.  I am so happy to have him home with me to snuggle. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and kind words!

    If I might ask...why did you take him off his old food? Also, how much
    do you feed at each meal (what is his weight & age, again, please).
    What treats might he had yesterday to create this issue?

    All the above so as to help us understand & avoid the same~Thanks!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
