Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian. What breed is he? Bloat is usually seen in certain breeds. Usually dogs with bloat are hugely bloated, greatly distended. It is a real emergency; dogs with bloat can die within hours. If you check his gums, are they pink or pale? Is he vomiting?
