I have had dogs for over thirty tears and none bloated until two bloated in 2011. I lost one, she was a foster and bloated while I was at work. It was too late. My male bloated a couple of months later, I saved him because he was at the EVet within 20 minutes after the onset of the first symptoms. It was a $3500 even and he recovered fully. I did not believe in bloat until it happened to me. There was nothing that suggested that these dogs were at risk beyond being German Shepherds. I know too many that lost their dogs to bloat.

Having experienced it, it changed the way I view preventative surgery and I would definitely do it whan my dog is under anyway. It is a terrible experience and if the torsion is preventable, I would do it. I hear the same from others who went through it. I thought I was doing something better with feeding etc. in the past, but it is the luck of the draw.
