Bloat In Dogs

BLOAT, also known as gastric dilatation and volvulus, or GDV. The stomach becomes distended with gas and puts pressure on the diaphragm, which can cause breathing problems. 

ANY DOG CAN GET BLOAT, but it's much more common in deep-chested, large breeds, like Akitas, Boxers, Basset Hounds, and German Shepherds. Some are at a higher risk than others, including Great Danes, Gordon Setters, Irish Setters, Weimaraners, and St. Bernards.
