    My dog got this heavily bloated stomach after eating and even drinking to.. Its been extreme the last 4months or so.. Can it be something that needs vet attention? She seems to be without pain or any discomfort, but i begin to get paranoid.. :confused:

    Hope this is the right place. :tongue_smilie:

    / Her stomach becomes "pregnant"... So really bloated, even if its only a real small potion food or water.

    She gets it every time or just now? I would take her to the vet regardless but if it's just now take her straight away

    If it was just this once it could be bloat but it wouldn't be happening that often. I would just take her and get it checked over just to be safe

    I just wanted to confirm what Nicky said. Get her to the vet tomorrow. You don't want to ignore something like this and if she's had it for 4 months already you really must go as soon as possible.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Have you tried changing her diet??
    Certain foods can cause intolerance which might result in a build up of gas in her tummy. Is she ever very *ahem* gassy??;)
    Always a good idea to get the vets opinion though.

    Not sure how old your dog is but with some I think stomach muscles lose a bit as they age so their belly isn't as small looking as it was, like the muscle just isn't as strong to hold them up/in quite as much?
