How to get rid of huge potbelly on dog that cant excercise?

She bruises too easily. It almost hits the floor and she cant sit right and has to sit side ways because of how big it is. Its a small dog of unknown breed. We found it in our yard one day. Does she have a vitamin deficiency? She eats cardboard, leather from the furniture and feces.

    I'd see what the Vet says.  Is this the same dog with the diarrhea problem?  That sounds like a very serious condition what with the dog eating the stuffing from a stuffed animal and all.  “Will a little dog die from eating a lot of tedy bear stuffing from a teddy bear?;” “Can we shock an unruly dog with a toy little joke shocker?;” “How to stop dog having diarrhea spray?”

    Sounds like she has quite a few things wrong.  Start with a Vet visit to see what they would suggest.

    Vet health check is the first place to find out........... sounds like this dog needs deworming as a start........ is bored and needs exercise, so if 'walking bruises'her ( never heard such nonsense) then swimming and feeding a decent food

    You need to take the dog to a vet for analysis.

    Pot belly can mean quite a few things wrong. Some quite dangerous.

    A bloated belly on a dog that is not overfed most likely means either a heavy internal parasite load or some other serious (hopefully treatable) disease or condition.

    Either way, you need to have your dog seen by a vet to get it sorted out.  You cannot address it by simply feeding less or exercising more.  If the dog's abdomen is so distended that she cannot sit properly, she's uncomfortable (at the least) and may in fact be very sick.

    get a vet check up and will they recommend what to do. The dog may even have cancer.

    First step is a trip to the vet to assess if there are any underlying issues.  The pica and bruising easily may be clues that theres more going on than her being obese.    The ubderlying issues may be a contributing factor to her weight.

    Your vet can advise on the best course of action to begin weight loss
