Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog. Can you tell me what is going on with him?
Hello? Are you online to discuss your dog?
Hello, my name is***** and I am happy to help. Signs of bloat include a visibly distended belly (if you place your hands on either side of the belly, past the rib cage, it feels like a balloon), breathing fast or hard, lethargy, trying to vomit but cannot. If you lift your pets lip and the gums are not pink, that is another indicator to go to the ER sooner rather than later.
Even if your pet does not get bloat, that amount of food can cause upset tummy. I always tell clients, better safe than sorry, so if you are seeing any of the signs I mentioned, then I recommend a trip in.
If I have answered your questions, please kindly rate me (this is how I am compensated for my time). If not, please reply back and I am happy to answer additional questions. Thank you.
Hello, I did not receive any reply from you, do you still require assistance?
