I had a dog bloat years ago and it was only fast action taking him to an emergency vet that saved his life. If she is crossed with a Lab they are very prone to bloat. Glad to hear that its not what was going on with your girl. My dog was only 5 when he bloated and we had his stomach stitched to his abdomen wall to prevent it twisting as this is what really kills them. He lived another 4 and half years without any reoccurrence till he was pts due to bone cancer. Hope all works out well for you doggy
A man who looks into a collie's eye to receive an icy stare is but a fool. Be at one with man's best friend and through his eyes you will see his very soul.
