This is very common in very deep chested dogs. Can be however known in small breeds also.


WHAT ARE THE RISK FACTORS FOR DEVELOPING BLOAT?

Classically, this condition affects dog breeds which are said to be "deep chested," meaning the length of their chest from backbone to sternum is relatively long while the chest width from right to left is narrow. Examples of deep chested breeds would be the Great Dane, Greyhound, and the setter breeds. Still, any dog can bloat, even dachshunds and chihuahuas.

Great post. Bloat is very common, and these are the signs:

Quote :
Typical symptoms often include some (but not necessarily all) of the following, according to the links below. Unfortunately, from the onset of the first symptoms you have very little time (sometimes minutes, sometimes hours) to get immediate medical attention for your dog. Know your dog and know when it's not acting right.

Attempts to vomit (usually unsuccessful); may occur every 5-30 minutes
Doesn't act like usual self
Significant anxiety and restlessness
Lack of normal gurgling and digestive sounds in the tummy
Hunched up" or "roached up" appearance
Bloated abdomen that may feel tight (like a drum

Here is another great website:

I know it is exceedingly common in puppies and I was told to be very careful... is it common in adults as well?
