If your dog's stomach is bloating or distended take it to a veterinarian IMMEDIATELY.  GDV (Gastric Dilatation and Volvulus) is a life threatening condition where the stomach fills with air them rotates on itself.  This causes death of the stomach tissue, can affect the spleen, and shock.  If untreated it causes death and this can happen very rapidly.  Take your dog in NOW!
If this stomach has flipped surgical correction is needed.  If the stomach is just very dilated and your dog is in shock then shock treatment and gastric decompression will be needed.
