Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Is she acting fine otherwise? Any history of vaccines? Any blood in the diarrhea?
Okay thanks for the additional information. Do you know if she was dewormed? A common cause for a swollen belly is intestinal parasites. Therefore I would recommend submitting a fecal sample to your veterinarian to get it tested. Even if she was dewormed, common dewormers may only treat 2 or three common intestinal parasites that puppies may get. But there are other parasites that they can get that may need a prescription to treat.
The request for the call may be an automatic prompt from the website not myself. So I am fine continuing this way
