Friend, this is very common and normal after eating for the abdomen to become distended. There is really nothing that you need to do other than giving her some time and it will go down on it's own. No need to worry, this is normal. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!

What about the bacterial rash?
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 2 years ago.
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a photo of representative skin to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (not if you're using the chrome browser) or you can use an external app such as or I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing. If you're not seeing a good response to Clavamox, I'm concerned that there might be an underlying demodicosis (mange mite) that needs to be addressed. How old in weeks is Elisa, please? has her vet performed skin scrapings looking for this mite?
