Re: Preventing the ‘Mother’ of All EMERGENCIES

//////////////////////////////////////////////

A cheery morning to you all.

My emergency yesterday morning is now doing well.
He is a BIG deep chested German Shepherd who had
the ‘mother’ of all EMERGENCIES..Bloat or Gastric
Dilation and Volvulus.

I recently talked about this surgery- as I have
been seeing a rash of these guys lately.

BLOAT is the second leading killer of dogs, after cancer. 

So if you have a LARGE BREED dog, you NEED
to be aware of the SIGNS of Bloat, and you should
KNOW what you can do to PREVENT THIS.

————————————————-
SIGNS of BLOAT- You NEED to KNOW these
————————————————-

This is VERY IMPORTANT if you have a ‘gassy’ dog-
one who’s stomach often distends after eating.

Restlessness and Acting VERY uncomfortable.

OFTEN with belly hunched- because of the PAIN

Attempts to vomit- FREQUENTLY and NOT SUCCESSFULY
USUALLY just foam or mucous comes up

BLOATED BELLY- especially easy to see if you lie
your dog on his side

PALE or off-color gums

Coughing and Unproductive gagging

Heavy salivating or drooling

Weakness- difficulty standing

Weak pulse

Collapse
If You SUSPECT BLOAT, then Get to YOUR
EMERGENCY VETERINARIAN ASAP!!!

The Sooner that your dog is diagnosed the
much better chance that he has of living.

Of Course this is a condition that is FAR
BETTER to PREVENT.
—————————————————–
AND here are some SPECIFIC things that you can do to
PREVENT BLOAT
—————————————————–

LIMIT exercise for at least 1 HOUR after eating

DON’T encourage your dog to Roll Over, which could
cause the stomach to twist

Feed 2 or 3 meals a day- a DON’T allow rapid eating

Do not allow EXCESS water consumption before or after
a meal- this delays gastric breakdown of the food and can
produce for gas.

HAVE Simethicone such as Mylanta Gas to
treat gas symptoms.

2 Additional Home Remedies are:
with 1/2 tsp of nutmeg or the homeopathic remedy Nux moschata 30

Make meals a peaceful, stress-free time
When switching dog food, do so gradually (allow several weeks)

DIET CHANGES>>

Lower the Gas Producing Components in Your
Dog’s Diet.

Primarily feed an Animal Protein Food-
MINIMAL CARBS.

I have yet to see a Dog Bloat on a Raw Diet.

Reduce carbohydrates as much as possible.

Feed a high-quality diet
Whole, unprocessed foods are especially beneficial

ADDITIONAL Fiber ( ie Ground Flax)

Add an Digestive Enzyme Supplement (Prozyme)

1 Tbs of apple cider vinegar given right after each meal will
promote an acidic environment in the stomach and intestine and
may help with digestion.

PROBIOTICS will aid in digestion- EVERY Dog Guardian should
have their dog on these.

//////////////////////////////////////////////

P.S.The FASTEST and EASIEST way to recognize the EARLY warning
signs of ANY SERIOUS disease, is to be comfortable
examining your pet at home. I have a DETAILED 60 video showing
you just this. TO check out my VIDEO, plus to get the Most

    The reason I should get your free course is that dogs are my passion. Of course I love all animals but dogs are brilliant.
    I lost two of the most wonderful huskie breeds to cancer ,a year apart from each other and I still miss them every day. the pain of losing them was unbearable.
    I have started a Doggie Day Care in my home and sometimes people just don’t want to spend the money on a vet, so I would like to learn how to help my dogs ,especially with ear infections.

    ‘My’ older dog has become incontinent. So, two months ago I bought a german shepherd puppy to cheer her (Buff) and Shadow (slightly younger) up before they became too old to enjoy the exhuberance, to prepare for security step in and – might as well mop up after two at the same time before I get too old to do that! I also have a ginger cat (Jachin) who graces my life with his presence. Personally, a healthy-ish 68, I don’t use mainstream medicine for my own health challenges, and apply the same principles to the animals who live with me. We eat as naturally as we can, exercise, play and sleep (I have to work, having no pension – which is where my desire for the free course comes in. The USdollar/SArand exchange rate make it absolutely impossible to buy on my odd jobs) The puppy, Ecco, turned out to have a heart murmer (I do take them to the vet for their first year’s vaccinations, and was so pleased to find someone of your professional calibre who seems to have the same approach to vaccinations) – which brings me to how I found you. Looking for natural immune boosters and other tips for Ecco’s heart condition on the internet – there was Andrew Jones – and his wealth of generous information! I have downloaded and read Heal your Pet at Home, and read your letter every day. (Hope you and Lewis and the rest of your family are well settled in your new home?) SO, I actually don’t know what more I will get from the giveaway course, and naturally there may be many more deserving causes BUT, we thought we’d put our request out there anyway. Whether I get it or not, it’snice to have this oppportunity to express appreciation for your attitude and your thoughtful tips, May you be well.

    You said in your article that you have yet to see bloat in a dog on a raw diet.

    This past Saturday I lost my Fila Brasileiro of almost 11 years to bloat. After a trip to the emergency room to relieve the gas (no volvulus yet), she still died a couple of hours later.

    She was on a raw diet but had a tendency to gulp down her food. More than likely, her age contributed to the condition. I am heartbroken but thankful for your prevention suggestions. I wish I had read up on this earlier but was never really concerned about bloat because all of my dogs (3 left now) are on a raw diet.

    Best,

    Sabine

    This past xmas eve, 8 days ago, my 3 yr. old Irish Setter bloated with volvulus and required emergency surgery. He was on one of the best Raw Diets available, probiotics, enzymes, ate from a slow feed bowl in as controlled of an environment as possible and it still happened. Wish we knew more about GDV. I was very lucky, he has made a full recovery and now has a tacked stomach. However, every meal I feed him, albeit several very small meals now, all come with much anxiety as we still do not know the cause(s). I struggle with what food to feed now, how much, how frequent, if there are any supplements I should be using, you name it… I only wish there were more answers to this very scary condition that afflicts and kills so many dogs.

    Anyone know of current research underway now??

    Thanks-
    Robin
