Not sure about the skin stuff, but unless you just fed him a huge meal, a belly that round usually means a pup has worms.

Yeah I thought the same thing but I have had him wormed twice sence I got him. The guy we got him from breeds pits I think he calls them extreme breeds they are very short, wide and muscular dog. I am takeing him to the vet this week so hopefully we will find something out.

I wormed Garion 6 times before he was done with the round worms. Better to be safe than sorry.

That pup has to be LOADED with worms. What did you use to deworm him? What are you feeding him and how much/how often?

Sorry but from your description, the "breeder" you got him from is nothing but a BYB - "extreme" pits? Your pup may have demodex, or a staph infection, or any other number of skin problems. Is he blue? Hard to tell in those pics, but a blue from a BYB is going to have any number of health problems, hope it is nothing serious.

Keep us updated- don't use any home remedies, just get him to the vet. If you start treating him with something it may make it worse since you don't know what is wrong. And whatever you do, don't believe people who tell you to use motor oil or anything like that if it's demodex!

Good luck and hope he's feeling better soon!

:peace:

Ok I just got back from the vet he says chopper is in great health the bumbs however were bite marks from the other puppys in the litter chewing on him poor pup. Two of them were infected I got the meds and everything should be cleared up in about a week or so. So everythings 100% great he is 10lbs. I will post some good pics later on of both my pits on the pic page thanks again. :peace:

Aloe helps soothe it, and putting something smelly may stop chewing good luck, I am glad he is not sick!
