Hello. This is Dr. Christian. I'd like to help.
When did the bloating start? Is he eating well and passing normal stool?
How long ago did he get over the parvo?
Has he had any vomiting?
Good. It sounds like he is doing great.
Some bloating is normal in puppies, especially after they eat but my suspicion is that some worms are still present and causing the bloating.
A second deworming may be needed.
Bloat wouldn't occur in a puppy this young so don't worry about that.
Usually 2 weeks between dewormings.
If he starts vomiting, acting lethargic, develops diarrhea or won't eat then I'd have him srechecked.
I can understand your worry. If his belly becomes more bloated looking than have him checked but it sounds like he is doing great, especially considering what he's gone through.
That sounds like a very good plan. It won't hurt to deworm him a little earlier than 2 weeks.
It wouldn't be a bad idea since they know his case so well. I'm sure they'd like an update on his progress.
I know I would in their situation.
It doesn't sound like that to me at all.
Bloat doesn't occur at this age and symptoms would be vomiting and lethargy.
You're welcome. How much does he weigh?
Probably 1/2 to 3/4 cup per day at most.
You're welcome. I'm glad I could help. Good luck and good night.
