    Default Bulldog bloat???

    Ok so I noticed Bear had a huge belly the other day, tight and he had gas. The only thing different he had was a different brand of pig ear and a whole hotdog he stole from my son. I really think the new pig ears (Petco brand) have done this to him. I gave him one yesterday and twwwaaaahla a fat belly today. Am I right to think this is the reason OR could it be something else. Since this is my first bully I must defer to the experts. The pics don't really show the fattness we see in person but I have a before photo (I am camera ready at all times).

    The third photo was 7/23, the others just a few minutes ago. Had to throw in a pic of him jumping at me because i was trying to take a photo and his sneak beagle attack

    I am not sure about bloat, but I know that puppies with very round bellies could have worms. Their bellies look distended and bloated. I do not know if this causes and of the gas you are describing tho.

    I would suggest not giving any pig ears (hopefully always supervised- they can get greedy and choke) for a week and see if it continues.

    The first time I seen his belly like that was a week ago when I gave him the new brand of pig ear. I thought it could have also been the hot dog he stole. So I tried another pig ear yesterday and the same thing happened. His last vet visit he was cleared for worms. If he gets the belly again without having a pig ear I'll take him back in.

    And yes always supervised

    I agree, if it is from the pigs ears then the only way to know is stop and make sure. That 4th pic is adorable also by the way.
