No symptoms of worms, just round belly.....
When I adopted Macy a few months ago, she looked heavy. Her stomach was round. When I took her from my aunt, she was giving her deworming medication and she gave me two more dates I needed to administer the medication. The first date I administered the medication, I got half of it in her mouth and the other half on the wall, sofa, my hair (you get the idea). The third time I gave it to her, I was able to get it all in her mouth.
She was free fed before I took her in. She was pretty spoiled because when my Aunt found her, she was starving and her bones were sticking out of her body as a 2 month old kitten. (She's 9 or 10 months now). When I took her, I fed her twice a day - 1/3 cup of Innova dry and 1/2 of a 3oz. can of wellness. As a couple of weeks went by her belly went down as I thought the dewormer was working and she was loosing weight. However, she has seemed to plateau and her belly is still round (though not as round as it was when I first got her). It's been the same for the past month. She has no other symptoms, no diahrea, no worms in her feces. She has thrown up a couple times, but no worms. Everything else seems fine except for her round belly.
It's time to take her to the vet, but I just wanted to know what you guys thought. I don't know if she's just fat (even though she hasn't lost any weight) or if she has worms.
