    DefaultBloat - What Really Causes It?

    There have been a few posts lately that mention different things that may cause bloat (such as elevated dishes, citric acid in food etc.). I think much of this info came from a study done at Purdue some time back. I was just googling the topic and came across an article by The Great Dane Lady. Actually I think there might be a few, but this one was in regards to the Purdue study. Has anyone read it? Interesting. If you google "Bloat The Great Dane Lady Purdue" it's the first item that comes up. I'm curious as to what other's thoughts are on this.

    I've also read articles that suggested wetting kibble to help prevent bloat....something my dog's breeder also said to do. Good idea? Bad idea???

    GDV I think still isn't clearly defined as to why it happens.
