    Default Possible bloat?

    So my 10 week old pup could possibly have bloat I think, he ate his food really quickly this morning and for his evening meal he ate very little of it and left the rest and has drank a lot of water. His stomach seems firmer than normal. He was playing outside a lot today and I haven't noticed what his stool is like. He has slept a lot this evening and not been his normal crazy self. Any ideas?

    If you think it's bloat, call the vet or ER vet immediately. Bloat isn't something to question. It's best to have them checked and not be than to assume it isn't and loose your baby. It's serious and life threatening.

    Would he sleep a lot if it was bloat?

    Here is an article on bloat...
    http://www.englishbulldognews.com/co...nglish-Bulldog

    Personally I would take my baby to the vets immediately to at least rule that out, bloat can be fatal!!!

    He has just pooped outside there and it was very soft and watery, could he just have eaten one thing while outside that has upset his stomach?

    He could very well have an obstruction… I will copy the link to that as well. This is another emergency situation...

    Here is that link...

    So many possibilities in a young pup with diarrhea and upset tummy. Could be a parasite, obstruction, bloat.... But the most common reason would be over feeding or switching foods without doing a slow transition from one food to the next.

    It would be a good idea to go to the vet to rule out parasites first .

    It never fails, stuff like this always happens on the weekend. I would let a vet check your baby to see what is causing his tummy problem.

    There is a difference between being bloated/"garbage gut" and the condition known as "bloat" which is actually GDV. There is a bit of info on this board about the condition. GDV( gastric dilation volvulus) is a medical EMERGENCY.

    I hope your baby is ok.

    Hi, I agree with everyone's advice, a checkup with the vet would be the best call to rule out bloat and potential parasites or other issues. I don't have any experience with bloat, but I was just checking in to see how your baby was doing. I hope he's feeling better, and is okay. Sending hugs and prayers your way.
