http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1WrT2719yo I was sent this video of an Akita with bloat on FB. The people in the video and the person taping had never seen a dog bloat before and probably didn't realize at the moment what an emergency it was. Happily the dog lived but even better more dogs might be able to live because we can see for those who have never experienced what bloat looks like. Just so no one makes the mistake. Bloat is an emergency - if you ever suspect bloat it's better to go to the vet and be proved wrong than wait and see.
