Does anyone know if there are any current bloat studies being done?
Univeristy of Perdue is not curently doing any bloat studiesDoes anyone know if there are any current bloat studies being done?
Studies find that soaking food niether increased nor decreased incidents of bloat, execpt that soaking food that used vitamin C (ascorbic acid) as a preserative dramatical increase risk of bloat, Exercise before or after feeding which also had no effect , raising the food bowl increased risk in large breed dogs.We also feed our dogs their food with water in it so as to keep them from drinking water after and causing the expansion issue.
Study found a strong genetic link but it might not be that simple as conformation plays an important factor and my account for the entire genetic factor, That is Deeper,Narrower (chest depth to width ratio) chested dogs are more prone to bloat. as are older dogs.I wonder however if there is any evidence of it running in any lines or anything
