Firm or soft tummy?
During our first visit to the vet last week, she mentioned that Moji's tummy was "slightly enlarged," but didn't give any reason why that might be, except to say it was "common" in very young puppies (Moji was ten weeks old) ...
Ever since then, I find myself touching her tummy area when I pick her up, and it always feels firm rather than soft, almost as if it were distended ... So I'm wondering if your puppies have firm or soft tummies? ...
One of my concerns is that I may be feeding her too much ... She has a strict three-time-a-day schedule, but at each feeding I let her eat as much as she wants in fifteen minutes, then take away the bowl ... Sometimes she seems to be eating an awful lot, and other times she actually forgets she's eating and goes off and does something else, but when I lure her back to the bowl, she eats a little more ...
