I was feeding cocoa, my standard poodle dry dog food and the woman from whom I adopted her says that was what killed her. She says you must always soak the food with standard poodles.
Cocoa was a not one to eat quickly or drink large quantities of water and run around a lot after eating, but she did die of bloating, and I hope to adopt another adult standard. Do you think that the dry dog food (NutriiMax or the other high end foods) are alright to feed a standard poodle? A large supply of fresh water was always available along side cocoa's dry dog food.
