Jack with swollen tummy
by: Jenny

Your Jack is getting up there in years so it couldn't hurt to take him in earlier. Sometimes dogs that have a swollen stomach have what is called Cushing's disease - the stomach is swollen and hairless and some other symptoms include increased appetite. But a swollen stomach could also mean fluid retention or gas. I think it would be wise to take him in to a get a professional opinion.
Hope your little one is ok!
