Bloat - The Mother of All (Pet) Emergencies

Though not specific to a breed, here's a very interesting article on vet emergency:

Lesson: If bloated, take your pet to (a competent) Vet as soon as possible… Or at least call the Vet for advise on what to do in your specific situation...

Fortunately bloat is more prevalent in the larger dogs,but can happen to any size. Friends with Great Danes were advised by their vet to use elevated feeders, saying that there is less gulping of air if the food is at the correct height. While I am not too worried about bloat, I got elevated feeders and my dogs like them. A small thing to do that helps with digestion.
