Bloat in Rottweilers

Bloat is a dangerous illness that can affect dogs very quickly with little or no warning whatsoever. If you own a dog like the Rottweiler, please talk with your vet about bloat and ways to look out for it. Bloat most often occurs in dep chested dogs like Rottweilers, Akitas, Basset Hounds, Great Danes, etc. Bloat can occur in other breeds as well. So what is bloat? It is when a dog’s stomach fills with gas, food or fluid and expands. The expansion is beyond normal and generally pushes out enough to apply pressure on organs causing blood flow to stop to the heart and stomach lining. The expansion can be so severe that the stomach lining tears making it very hard for your canine to breathe. In this process the stomach may also twist which can stop blow flow to the heart. Immediate attention from a professional vet Ellicott City, MD is needed. Or make an appointment at this website Marriottsville Animal Hospital.
