I believe so. I think it has to do with them swallowing air.
There are people who feed horses with hay nets to either slow them down, reduce mess/wastage, or keep them from ingesting dirt/bedding.
But this can cause them to cough, because it opens up their windpipe and they tend to inhale the dust particles more than if they eat off the ground.
I always look at it as feeding in the position that nature intended them to eat. Horses graze and eat off the ground and wolves aren't fed in elevated bowls.

I guess I don't understand how it prevents nor causes it. is it the way the neck is bent or?

"Approximately 20 and 52% of cases of GDV among the large breed and giant breed dogs, respectively, were attributed to having a raised feed bowl."
