Apparently one of our goldfish was a bit gassy. She was having "buoyancy issues". Ever try swimming while hugging a beachball? That's what our fish was imitating, to the point where she would totally flip over and float upside down when she tired of fighting it.
Note: I have no idea whether or not this fish is male or female, but we named "her" Lillie, thus the female pronoun...
Now, none of us had ever seen such a thing and I just figured she had one fin in the toilet, but she just kept on going - for days and days. Finally, Dr. Wolfgang did a google search and found this to be a common thing with fancy goldfish. That's probably part of our problem, in the past we've only had unfancy fish.
Anyways, about 3 minutes of research and he learned we should feed her peas. What? What?? Feed peas to the goldfish? Yeah, okay whatever.
And heck if it didn't work.
She was right side up in a few minutes and bottom feeding like the best of 'em. A few peas in her general direction was all it took to cure the fish farts - or lack thereof.
Is there such a remedy for the dog? OTHER family members?
