You need a second opinion from another Vet.......Get copies of all tests (From the first Vet) to take with you to the second....This will save you the money of doing repeats....Your original Vet doesn't seem concerned enough to me. Was your dog checked for Parasites (Worms)? Just curious.....   Karla

The whole stomach is swollen or some part of it?  Karla is right get a second opinion and get copies of those records. They are "your" records and get those x-rays too.
Has the dog been wormed as that may be the cause.  When you go to the Vet, take a fresh stool sample with you in a container or Baggie for analysis.
