Why would my puppy's stomach be hard?
I have a dachshund, Chihuahua mix who is about 8 - 10 weeks old, he could be younger but I was never told how old he is so it's really a guess. I got him a little over a week ago and he was skin and bones. We have been feeding him regularly, we tried puppy food but he wanted to eat the other dog's dog food more. he had worms when we got him so we bought him worm medicine and there doesn't seem to be a sign of them anymore. Since he's been eating good he is getting a belly on him. What worries me is how fast he got the belly and that it is hard. I know that it's a good thing that he has a belly because that means he is eating properly which if he was skin and bones that would really be worrying me. Is the hardness common for the type of mix he is? Or should I be worried? It's been since I was a kid that I have had a puppy and I want to make sure that this is normal and if it isn't I want to make sure I get him the appropriate attention he needs. thank you.
