My dogs body is swollen

My 4 year old English Pointer Has in the last few months become either swollen or fat and has gotten kind of lumpy looking. Her eyes are blood shot red. She is eating ok and seems perfectly happy, shes just gotten huge!

Have you had a vet give her the once-over? Even if she's just gaining weight, there may be some underlying, serious cause for it--thyroid problems, for example.

A trip to the vet would be a good first step in finding out if something is wrong with your dog. :thumbs up

It could be so many things and I think you should take her to the vet asap. Good luck and keep us posted. :fingerscr :goodvibes:
