puppy with swollen stomach
puppie 4 weeks old has swollen stomach not able to go to the bathroom what can i do?
i have no money right now and need help
There are a few reasons for your puppy's stomach being swollen like this - one is that he has a worm infestation, the second is that he's constipated, and the third is that he has an internal blockage of some sort.
The first two are generally not life-threatening in the short term, but the third is extremely serious. If your pup seems happy and active apart from his swollen tummy, then hopefully it is one of the simpler issues.
Puppy worms are very common and you will need to get a de-wormer from your vet to treat it. A constipated puppy is also fairly common, and there are several simple measure you can take to help.
However, if your puppy seems lethargic, in pain, isn't eating or drinking or seems sick in any way he needs to be seen by a veterinarian IMMEDIATELY as he could be in serious trouble.
Best of luck, I hope he's doing much better soon.
