Hopefully you took your dog to the vet, because if you didn't - and you are reading this he's probably already died right now.

Bloat is FATAL in all cases if left untreated - it usually only take 30 mins for it to take a turn for the worse.

Just wondering....what causes bloat? My rotti has never had it...but just for preventative reasons.

Bloat KILLS. If this dog is not taken to the vet and he does have bloat he will die a horrible, painful death.

There are many different theories on the cause of bloat. Avoiding activity after meals and feeding smaller meals is recommended to help prevent it.

A dog that has bloat must have surgery to survive.
