My Dear Shep R.I.P

On the 2nd July @ 3.15pm, we very sadly lost our beautiful boy to the treaded Tortion AKA (Bloat) His name was (Shep) it only took from 8.15pm wednesday until 3.15pm the next day to send him to rainbow bridge he was only aged 7 years 10 months, Please takecare when feeding your dog a Jumbo Bone as that is what he last ate 2 minutes before it happened. What shocks me also is the fact that vets still do not trained fully to know what the symptons are to this.....There was no Bloat visible

God Bless, God Rest, My angel xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Re: My Dear Shep R.I.P

I'm so sorry for your loss. My GSD Sam also bloated at 7 years old, just some months ago. Luckly I caught it on time and he is fine.
May Shep rest in peace.

Re: My Dear Shep R.I.P

I'm so sorry. I had never even heard of bloat until my ex's Golden Retriever died from it years ago also at the age of 7. Then I did a lot of research. It's a terrifying and awful thing. I have a print-out about it that I put on my fridge when I have pet sitters in the house.
Again, I'm very very sorry for your loss.

Spending more than a few hours a day in a forum is unhealthy and makes people mean

Re: My Dear Shep R.I.P

So sorry to hear of your loss. Bloat indeed is a very scary thing that can even happen despite doing everything right. May Shep rest in peace and may you find comfort from your grief.

Oh my god. How does one identify it timely enough to rush to the vet? RIP Shep.
