There are a few causes of bloating in young puppies. One is if they have over eaten or drank too much. Puppies often look bloated after they eat and can be uncomfortable when their belly is felt. Has the bloating been on and off or is he constantly bloated for days?

Ok, the whipworms also will causing bloating in puppies. Puppies are difficult to treat and do not always full resolve for months. What medication did you give him so far?
