Optimal treatment and follow-up for your dog requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Specific recommendations will be dependent upon the underlying cause of the abdominal distension.

  • Administer prescribed medication(s) as directed by your veterinarian. Be certain to alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your dog.

  • Monitor your dog. You may be requested to either weigh your dog or measure abdominal girth with a tape measure. Note changes in appetite, thirst, elimination behaviors, including the frequency of urination. Also note changes in attitude, including increased or decreased activity levels.
