Hey All, I've noticed that my girls stomach has been swollen. At first I thought she was just getting fat, I adopted her about 3 months ago. But after giving it a good feel she appears to be bloated and swollen. It's been about three days now. Otherwise she is acting normal, and does not seem to be in any pain, not even when I gently squeeze her belly. I called her vet and they said not to worry, but of course, I am worried and would love everyone's opinion here. A week ago I got her anal glands expressed, she was licking back there and that seems to be good now, maybe this has something to do with that? She did not have diarrhea until once the other day and then again today, but with two solid poops in between. She has been eating normal, and was very happy when I gave her a new squeak toy. She is eating normally too, I added some rice to her kibble to try and ease her stomach. Any thoughts? I don't think it's bloat considering she has no other symptoms. Could it be gas? Any tips on how to deal with that?
