Canine Bloat

A friend posted a link to this article today on canine bloat – which is basically when a dog’s stomach fills with air and/or food, becomes distended, and the stomach often twists. Symptoms vary from here – some dogs are listless, some agitated. They can vomit white foam. The key to saving your dog is acting fast and trusting your instincts – if you have any sense at all that something is wrong, take your dog to your vet. Fast. Big dogs with broad chests (like Dobermans, Great Danes and Boxers) or who eat extremely quickly (like my Yellow Lab who inhales his food in 2.3 seconds) are most at risk. Dog owners – educate yourselves and read this very informative article – “What You Don’t Know About Bloat Can Kill Your Dog” here.
