    She is sitting on my lap and her tummy is making really loud rumbling/gurgling sounds. I have put her lunch down and she hasn't touched it but gobbled her breakfast this morning. She is 4 months old and has 3 meals a day. Her faeces are still normal and she seems fine in herself :confused:

    She sounds like she is ok to me. Maybe you can hear her brekkie going down. LOL As she is getting older she might start to want less meals. Mine have two meals a day, one in the morning and one in the evening.

    Its probably just gas that you can hear, or she might just have a bit of a tummy bug.
    I notice you say she gobbled her breakfast this morning, Did she run and jump about straight after and is she fed on dried food? If so keep a watch on her, If her stomach becomes over enlarged and becomes really hard, and especially if she becomes listless and/or dry vomits, ie tries to be sick but brings nothing up, then it may be an idea to speak to your vet. Large deep chested breeds can become prone to bloat especially (You dont mention what breed she is) and that can lead to complications if they dont pass the excess gas. If possible its always a good idea not to let them exercise or charge wildly about at least an hour before and hour after eating, especially if a large breed.
    Likely she will be fine but just keep an eye on her just incase.

    Thank you, she is on a mix of wet and dry food. She usually goes straight outside after eating and lays in the sun which she did today. She is a cavalier king charles.

    I think I worry to much about this dog! I listen to my gut instinct in regards to the children's health/decisions to be made but with the dog I'm fussing over any little thing :eek:

    Haha I used to hold a mirror to my kittens noses when they were babies just to make sure they were still breathing.....!

    So you're not alone on the fussing front....

    Aww yeah, she's probably just grumbling away, like your stomach does sometimes when you eat :)

    Also as someone above said, maybe cut her food down to 2 meals a day... We did when she was 6 months.
