I hope this is the right place. I’ve noticed recently that our boys puff up when they’re eating. It doesn’t happen at any other time. Though yesterday I did see Toffee had puffed up and was just relaxing.

Is it normal? As said it only seems to be when theyreeating (their veg).

Puffing up is usually a sign of pain. I’d take to the vet to get him checked out. Could be a teeth problem?

All of mine puff up while they are eating, so I think that is ok. If they are puffing up at other times too it could be a sign of pain.
