Hello everyone, Im New to this forum but I was worried about my 4 month puppy. Hes a American bulldog mix with possible wired haired terrier. His mom was hit and killed by a car and I saved the litter and raised them until I could get them adopted. All were adopted but one owner returned one. I now have him,and his name is Onyx. I also have a Chihuahua who is about 5 years old with no problems. That being said I m worried about the puppy because his stomach is swollen and bloated looking and feeling. Its been this way for about a week but it just keeps getting bigger. I done believe he has bloat. Hes not uncomfortable. And he has had worms in the past. He eats like a champ but hes had bad gas lately and his stools are loose but not watery. I found out recently that one of his siblings died from a stomach twist, but that was within hours of the incident. Any ideas from anyone?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Your best bet is to take him to the vet. Only they can diagnose your puppy's problems. It is imperative that you do this ASAP...the longer you wait, the worse it could be for your pup. Good luck, and please let us know what the vet says.

Thank you for your response. Im taking him to the vet in the morning but I was just worried. He is so sweet and I don't want anything bad to happen...I guess I was trying to ease my mind. Ill let you know what is said.

Hes doing better. The vet did a deworming just in case and said he thinks he swallowing air when he eats since its worse after eating.
