It would seem so. Elevated feeding is the big one. Originally thought to lower the risk, once the data started flowing in it was determined to be a contributing factor in over half the cases studied
Across all the same breeds and all the same bloodlines even, Australia has a dramatically lower incidence. This seems to be due to the much more common practice of giving the dog the family table scraps. I remember doing this is a kid. Bloat rates in the US have skyrocketed since kibble only became the norm as well as elevated feeding
