    Default Bloat chart, links and a video

    Would it be possible to make this a sticky......A person I know quite well lost her newfie to bloat today, she missed some of the early signs and did not go and see the vets

    I think all people who have bloat prone dogs should print this and put it on the fridge, even if it only saved one dog

    Oh what a horrible way to pass away, RIP to your friends dog :'(

    Just curious, is there a list of breeds more prone to bloat?

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Although any dog can be affected by bloat, it most often occurs in deep-chested, large and giant breeds between the ages of 4 and 10 years old.

    Great Dane
    German Shepherd
    Standard Poodle
    Rottweiler
    Akita
    Bloodhound
    Irish Setter
    Golden Retriever
    Irish Wolfhound
    Labrador
    Newfoundland


    The following small/mid-sized breeds may also be prone to bloat:

    Dachshund
    Basset Hound
    Airedale Terrier

    I believe most Mastiff's are prone to it as well. I have also heard of Amstaff's passing away due to bloat and it also seems quite common in Whippets. Have also heard of Staffy's getting bloat.
    Also any crossbreeds of these breeds would be prone to it as well.

    Reading that Bloat diagram sends chills down my spine.
    If I lost my dog I don't think I could ever get over it..
    I would be permanently damaged..

    What is the time frame of the symptoms on the chart? How long does it take to get from phase one to phase 3?

    That would be such a horrible thing to have happen! Your friend must be devastated
