Interesting that you mentioned that. My buddy with the two that bloated mentioned the same thing... unfortunately, we'd had our pup spayed about a week prior.

I'll just have to stay on top of it. We feed two meals, watch water intake, keep pup in shape...

Thanks all for the inputs,

As previously discussed.....My CHILI BEAN bloated, we rushed her to the Hospital and they did emergency surgery, all went well, however when she was recouperating in the Hospital a blood clot ended her life. I blame the torsion, the bloat even though the surgery was successful.
She had a full productive life, 13yrs with us on the Ponderosa, just weren't ready to say goodbye.
