Exclamation HELP?! Is Lynx fat or is there a problem????

Is Lynx fat or do u think this could be a problem?

He's totally fine, alert, eating properly & his 'poop' is fine, but he has a very large stomach!! & even after my boys 'fast' day the other, he was still fat? I'm worried this maybe turn into something else?

He eats the same as my other boys, which is 1-2 pellets in the morning & varied things in evening depending on which day.....for example 2-3 blood worms or a pinch of flakes, just can't understand his size?!

This was him before:

Yeah he looks bloated. Like doggyhog said, fast him for a couple days to see if the swelling goes down.

Stop feeding him until his tummy goes back to normal, and cut the blood worms out,

If he does get a tad bloated after eating, before his next feeding it should be back to normal, If not then DON"T feed until it does and cut his amount back.

Blood worms if your not careful can cause bloat very easily & Should only be given as an occasional treat.
