Hello again

Sorry to hear about your dog's problems, I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. " My dogs belly is swollen. She been taken predisdone since yesterday, is this normal? " : No this is not typical, in my experience this would be a very unexpected symptom related to the use of this drug. Probably no connection.

2. " Should I stop giving her the medicine ? " : I would be reluctant to suggest you stop these meds, but really you should contact the vet clinic where these drugs were prescribed as soon as possible.

3. Hopefully this is something very minor in your case, but the worry with a sudden onset swollen belly would be things like internal bleeding or build up of fluid in the abdominal cavity { Ascities } So if in doubt best have your dog checked over by a vet again.

4. Also I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your dog's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
