My kitten has just been Dr wormed 2 days ago but his stomach

Customer Question

My kitten has just been Dr wormed 2 days ago but his stomach has ballooned to a very large size ..the vet did see him when his stomach was large but it has gotten bigger
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations your kitten can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the kitten's name?
Customer: Peter is his name..he also has slight diarrhea...otherwise he is acting normal
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Peter?
Customer: He is a small kitten not sure of his age his fur seems to me to be dull...

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

I have to say that I am quite concerned about Peter.

How much larger would you say his belly is? (you can post a photo using the paperclip icon above your task bar)

What tests did his vet do?

Did they mention if his belly felt to be full of fluid?
