How do you tell the difference b/t a bloated belly, and just a full belly? (In a kitten, around 12 weeks old)

Has the kitten been dewormed? A big round hard belly often indicates worms.

If he hasn't been dewormed, just take a stool sample to the vet to be analyzed. Deworming is easy.

If it were just a full belly it wouldn't stay that way.

Thanks for the replies. The reason I was asking is she's been a little constipated. Yes, shes been dewormed and just last week finished taking Albon, which the vet says it what probably caused the constipation. Thanks again! I'll watch and make sure her belly goes down.
