He has been unwell for about 2 weeks, last week he started to be sick but I put that down to the fact that he had eaten some lamb, sometimes lamb can be a bit fatty and felt this was the reason for his vomitting. Since then I have noticed his stomach is quite swollen, some days it is rock hard and other times it is a little softer. His lethargy leads me to know he is not well. He is also quite breathless but is not vomitting now.
Swollen belly more noticable in the last weeks, when I say he is breathless I mean he is panting a lot not just when he is out walking.
Took Benji to the Vet that evening and had checks for fluid build up - blood tests revealed Cushings Syndrome - on medication. Thank you for prompt response.
Could you advise me how they would have tested for fluid build up as Benji now seems to have a very large "bruise" like mark on his underbelly?
Thank you will try that.
My Bichon keeps biting / licking his feet - have looked and can't see anything i the pad or between his claws (nails). He is licking that much that his suposedly white fur is now pink.
Any solutions please.
