Thanks, those are the things I had read about too. I'll take her to the vet on monday to be sure! Gosh, I don't want her to have anything serious. :/

Try not to worry. xxx I'm sure everything will be fine. Without other symptoms present, I'd guess it to be something easily remedied.

A friend of mine had her puppy wormed and gave pumpkin for diarrhea and surprise surprise she pooped out worms that were so bad it looked like spaghetti. Not saying this is the case with lilo but I dont think it would hurt. Does she seem to be passing gas? Its always a possibility she isnt tolerating raw well.

Eek, I had a look at the supermarket and they don't sell canned pumpkin. It's not very popular in the UK from what I can see! As for possibly not tolerating raw well, I'm not sure. Her stools have been very healthy since being on raw. If anything, she was more bloated before going raw. Generally she doesn't have a gas issue, but yesterday morning she did! It was horrible.

Does the bloating look bad on the picture? Google images always comes up with the worst cases possible so in comparison, Lilo doesn't seem as bloated. I can't figure out if it's bloated enough to worry or if it's normal? All I know is that Coco wasn't like that, but I don't know if other puppies can be like that naturally?

It really doesn't look bad in the pics. Looks like puppy belly. Honestly, if it's really concerning you, I'd go with your gut feeling and have it checked out.

If she's on a monthly wormer from your vet, I'm almost positive it isn't worms.

If she had blockage, she'd be vomiting and not pooping. It wouldn't go on for days without her becoming more ill.

My guess is that it's normal, or diet related. Maybe post in the raw section and see if something you are feeding could be causing gas and bloating.

There is something called "bloat." Give it a Google.

Hoping all is well. xxx

^ Thanks, that's reassuring. Maybe I'm worrying for nothing then when it comes to the bloating. I'll keep an eye on her to see if she keeps having that pale brown discharge though, but might not go to the vet so soon after all. I don't want her to be ill, but I also don't have a lot of money right now so don't want to pay for a vet visit if I don't have to.
