why does my 9 weeks old pitbull puppy have a big stomach
(Pittsburg, California, United States)
I have a bluenose pitbull who has a big bloated stomach.
i feed him every day at least 15 minutes every other four hours then give him water then put him outside to let him poop an pee i don't want my puppy to die.
does any body know why he have a big bloated stomach?
Hi Edsiel If the bloating is only noticeable right after he's eaten, or been drinking, then it's probably just because he's eating/drinking a lot, or too quickly.
But if his stomach is big and seems bloated all the time, the most likely cause is a case of puppy worms. Most pups have worms to begin with and your vet needs to treat him for this when he gets his puppy vaccinations.
As you're new to puppy care, I'd recommend that you read my New Puppy Care page and my Potty Train A Puppy so that you you learn exactly what you need to do to take care of him properly.
I hope this helps, and wish you the best of luck with your pup.
