Everyday I take Meka for a bike ride - about 1.5 miles. For the first 6 blocks she runs all the way to the park, I don't even need to pedal. We stop at the park (not a dog park) play and I let her go potty. On the rest of the way back home I pedal slowly so she can jog. When we get home I feed her dinner within 10 - 15 min. I was wondering if this is too soon to feed her. Can this cause BLOAT since she likes to drink lots of water too? I tried adding water to her food - to plump it up but she didn't like that much and would stop eatting if it was soggy. How soon can I feed her after her excerise? Thanks

Mine won't eat that soon after exercising, but it's much hotter there than SoCal. I let the panting and water settle before I feed, probably about 45 mins or so.

I will wait until my dog has been calm and breathing normally for at least 20 minutes after heavy exercise.
