Q. Excessive belching, wants to eat grass. Lasted 2 to 3 hrs. No loss of appetite. Seems to be subsiding. Gave 10 mg Pepsid, didn't seem 2 help.

A. You can give simethicone, most often administered at dosages of 1 to 2 mg/lb body weight three times a day (every 8 hours) to help alleviate the gas. If the condition persists, I recommend getting your dog examined by your vet to see if there is an underlying problem causing his symptoms.
