Canine bloat is often a fatal condition that can quietly sneak up on all types of dogs including the Icelandic Sheepdog? If you’re not aware of canine bloat or its symptoms give your vet a call. Your vet can help you better understand bloat as well as learn what symptoms to look out for in your Griffon. Bloat occurs when an irregular amount of gas, food or fluid builds up in the stomach causing it to expand. Stress can often be a contributing factor. General symptoms of bloat that may affect your Griffon include unsuccessful attempts to vomit, abnormal behavior, anxiety, restlessness, hunched up appearance (as if in stomach pain), no normal digestive sounds in the stomach, bloated or tight abdomen, whining, pacing, foaming at the mouth, drooling, unsuccessful attempts to poop, etc. Bloat can lead to low blood pressure, shock, and damage to internal organs. Call your vet Aurora, CO to learn more.
