I particularly liked Prager's point on bloat. As he is from a country where dry food has only been available for a relatively short time he is in the ideal position to notice the huge increase in bloat since the introduction of dry food.
Anyone who knows me will be aware that I am a bit neurotic about bloat. This is why I seldom feed dry food. I've fed mainly raw to my dogs for 30 odd years.
I've had two Deerhounds who bloated. One died three days after surgery for gastric torsion. The other was hospitalised for nearly a week after surgery and his heart was never the same afterwards. He died 18 months later.
On both occasions dry food was responsible for the bloating. With the first Hound, Herne, I had run out of bones so I gave him some 4 x 2 dog biscuits to chew instead. Herne was old and his teeth were worn from chewing on a chain in the years before his rescue so he didn't chew the biscuits properly. The Vet put the blame on the dog biscuits after viewing the x rays.
With the second Hound, Weyland, both the dog and I were stressed after an indiginous foster child was taken away sobbing to be reunited with family he had never met. I had forgotten to take meat out of the freezer and the husband picked up a bag of Supercoat from the local general store. The following morning Weyland bloated. He was touch and go for days after surgery.
Now I won't feed dry to any bloat prone breed and only use it very occasionally with other breeds when I am having trouble putting weight on.
