Canine bloat (gastric torsion):

A serious and sometimes fatal intestinal condition that may occur when dogs eat or drink too much too quickly. Symptoms include:

  • abdominal distension
  • excessive salivation
  • dry heaving
  • restlessness
  • increased heart rate

To prevent bloat, slow down your dog's eating and make sure he remains inactive immediately afterwards.

  • Create a regular feeding schedule of two to three small meals a day
     
  • Put food in a slow feeder. The staggered shapes decrease the amount your dog can ingest at a time.
     
  • Always review any new feeding regimen with your veterinarian.
