You’ve noticed that your dog’s stomach is gurgling like crazy or making weird noises – whether it’s growling, rumbling, or growling! You may wonder if this is a normal part of their digestion or may be something more serious that needs to be addressed with your veterinarian.

Here are the Reasons Why Dog’s Stomach is Gurgling Like Crazy

Just like a human’s digestive system, our dog’s system pushes gases through the intestines as food is digested. The gastrointestinal tract, or GI tract for short, includes the stomach, small intestines, and large intestines.

Normal Digestive Gurgling

The second, and one of the most common reasons for your dog’s stomach making a gurgling noise is a sign of hunger. Another instance is just like that of the human body.

A Sign of Hunger

Most commonly, this happens when a dog breaks into the trash can and consumes all kinds of food scraps, paper, plastic, or other discardable items that may be in your garbage bin.

Eating A Foreign Object

Common disorders or syndromes can include things like intestinal parasites, inflammatory bowel disease, gastrointestinal foreign bodies, hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, an adverse reaction to medications, metabolic problems.

Potentially Serious Health Condition

There are a few things that can be done to prevent this such as splitting their food into more frequent meals and giving more food, ensuring they have plenty of water or taking them on a walk following their meals to aid with digestion.
