Food Bloat in Dogs
Food bloat can kill your dog – or it may quickly resolve with a couple of medications. The only way to know for sure is with a trip to the veterinarian.
Luckily for your canine friend, food bloat is relatively simple to treat and rarely results in long-term consequences. Your veterinarian will likely x-ray your dog’s abdomen to ensure that this is just gastric dilatation and not a GDV, which calls for immediate surgery to untwist the twisted stomach and/or bowel and perhaps surgically remove damaged intestine.
