They did take an xray which showed no stones.
She only had the one drop of blood on her towel and that's it.
I haven't been giving her any simethicone or motility drugs. The vet didn't want to go down that road yet.
If I thought she was really uncomfortable I would give her the simethicone as I have in the past.

If her poops have always been small it would be okay right?

I will keep on giving her the critical care as she is taking it so well and it can't hurt. I will take her back to the vet and suggest the motility drugs as I don't want her to be back in the state that she was.
I was just seeing what I should ask the vet about.

thanks for you help

Why didn't the vet want to give her anything for the gas/ bloat symptoms?

I think she was thinking that the critical care would get her gut moving. She gave me metcam for any pain that she was having.
I would have preferred to give her the simethicone so that she would have relief right away.
The metcam helped but I could tell when she needed her next dose and felt bad for her. She is not in an pain right now and the poops are normal for her.
I will continue to monitor her and bring her in for a recheck and see if we can figure out why it's happening.
