Re: Dog BloatI am very aware of it as it affects deep chested dogs more than smaller dogs and having a Lab it's a real concern, particularly because Bailie bolts her food.
Re: Dog Bloatyes I was well aware of gastric torsion "bloat" in dogs, not unheard of and can be fatal in dogs.
Re: Dog BloatGastric torsion (GDV) is a horrible thing, it can come on really rapidly and requires immediate veterinary attention.
Re: Dog BloatLike others have said, it is a frightening thing to happen and you have to act quickly.
Re: Dog BloatMy sisters Labrador died of this back in the 80s, it's meant all our dogs have had raised feeders and I've they eat too fast I hold the bowl and hand feed more slowly. It's probably me being too cautious but buttons was a lovely dog only fault he had was gobbling his food too quickly
