Does my puppy have a bloated stomach?

Banned 24
Found 30th May 2008
Hi, i got a puppy yesterday and it looks like it has a bloated stomach although he seems in no pain and his belly isnt hard. He is also going toilet ok so maybe im just paranoid.

Its 11 weeks and its a jack russell.

Pics in the second post.

Thanks
Dan

Yeah he has been wormed, although i was told that it will only kill the live worms not the worm eggs so he could have more now i suppose, his doo-doo doesnt look like it has worms.:thumbsup:

best take him to a vet for a check-up just to be on the safe side, sometimes it can be the sign of worms!

Most puppies have fat tums, make sure the pup is wormed and if you are still worried take puppy to the vet.
It looks healthy enough to me.

When was he last wormed and with what product? Also can you see any little "grains of rice" in his poop, or round his bum bum?
Is it just after eaten or all the time?

Hi, i rang the vet today and got an appointment next tuesday, i didnt mention the bloated belly as i thought it was ok as he doesnt seem in any pain at all and when he lays down he gets comfortable easily.

I think ill take him to the vets tomorrow just to get a quick check up

I cant see no grains of rice in his poop or near his bum. Also i dont know when he was last wormed, i forgot to ask, i will call tomorrow to find out.

Is there worming products i can buy in the shops that will work ok?

A puppy will have worms if the mother had them. I would advise you to get tablets from your vet, you will need to know the puppys weight and you don't need to see the vet for this, just ask at the desk for a puppy worming tablet.
Hope this helps.

Definately needs worming!! When you buy them they always say wormed but sometimes they just put it in the food and some get it and some don't.

Puppies always have podgy tummies, as long as he has been wormed I wouldn't stress.

Thanks for the help everyone, his stomach is warmer than the rest of his body, is that normal?

+Rep left for help

I wouldnt use any products for worming, that you buy from a pet shop. The vets is best! Let us know how you get on x

Thanks, ill go to my vet tomorrow and pick up some stuff, hopefully he is ok and i am just paranoid. He seems completely happy:-D

AWWW he's the image of my dog when he was a pup. I think it might just be his stance sometimes I look at mine and think hes a strange shape but I just think its typical Jack Russel but if your worried bes to get him checked out to ease your mind.

My dogs' tummies always seemed warmer than the rest of them!

Ive never had a problem with worms, and this is my two girls fatty tummys i just wanna nibble them! Yum yum!
