Bloat Clinical Research

2013 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Betsy Iole
I did a search to find a post on the clinical studies of risk of bloat. I found the topic but I remember that there is a published clinical research study. Can anyone re-post that link? Thank you!

Purdue's Epidemiology page on Canine Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus (Bloat), which details findings of the above studies, as well as the findings described below.

Additionally, BHCA's Basset Hound Health Links includes GDV/Bloat links.

Thanks Betsy! I knew you would have it.
It really does make a huge difference to have a medical researcher -- and not just a researcher, but the medical researcher for BHCA -- on Cyberhound. :)

Have I said thanks, Betsy, any time lately? :)

I'm always amused when I see Betsy's references popping up on other boards, even though they're violations of CH's copyright restrictions. At least, by using Betsy's work, people can be assured they're getting solid, reliable information.

Thanks again, Betsy, for all the hard work you do. :)
LOL! The references are in the public domain, and they're freely available to everyone. :) And I'm happy to provide information that basset owners anywhere and everywhere might find helpful. :) I should also note my posts are my own and don't reflect BHCA official policy. Got to get back to shining my halo, now... ;)
Betsy, research is hard work and an artform, at that. I should know --- I'm in the middle of trying to teach 3 classes of students: 1. what research is; 2. how to do research; and, 3. how to write a research paper.

Having spent the past week with 90 pairs of eyes staring back at me in horror :D )
Haloes are overrated. ;)
