Barkingham Pet Hotel – Things to watch for if you have large breeds.

For those of you that have large breed, barrel-chested dogs, bloat can happen in many of the larger breeds. If not caught in time, can be deadly. With only about 30 minutes to get your dog to the vet, the dog’s stomach can flip. This leads to a very painful death unless caught in time.

You will see the dog pacing, salivating and extremely anxious and uncomfortable. Many theories are that either the dog may eat too fast while intaking too much air at the same time. Another theory is dry kibble expands in the stomach. Also, drinking a lot of water while eating and exercising heavily prior to eating. Some people choose to have their dog’s stomach tacked to prevent bloat.

At Barkingham, we use slow feeders and stop exercise an hour before and after, to give the dog’s stomach time to rest before going out and resuming activity.
