Bloated SAR Dog

Bloat is always a life threatening emergency, therefore, veterinary intervention must always be sought as quickly as possible. Bloat will cause the dog's stomach to swell with gas and cause great discomfort. Severe distention of the stomach may be life threatening as it may compress the dog's heart. All breeds of dogs, but especially those with deep chests, are predisposed to bloat. Irregular feeding intervals and large meals before work increase the likelihood of a dog bloating. Heavy work in hot, humid environments without adequate rest and water Simple preventive measures are to avoid feeding large meals at infrequent intervals and to avoid feeding a dog less than two hours before work. Working or playing in hot, humid environments should be accompanied by plenty of rest and access to water.
