What causes a distended belly on a playful kitten?

Does she need to go to the vet?


Answer by  Valentine62 (2131)

I would check for worms in her litter box. If not that, then maybe you are over feeding her and she has a digestive problem.

yes, I would recommend that the kitten sees a vet, more than likely the kitten has intestinal parasites, such as roundworm, which is passed in the mother's milk.

I would bring her in, or at least call them, it is not normal for any cat to get a distended belly (unless pregnant). It can sometimes mean that they ate something they were not supposed to and has now obstructed their system.

A distended belly on a kitten or a puppy can mean the animal has worms. If she has a bowel movement you should check it for worms. I say this because worms are exceedingly common in kittens and puppies and they can get sick and become unplayful very fast if the situation isn't taken care of.
