Hi I have an 10 week old female cockapoo and her stomach seems bloated! She has been lively all day but around an hour ago my son picked her up and she yelped and has been quiet since! Is this something to do with her stomach being bloated or maybe my son picked her up in an awkward position! She also has diarreah
