|I am concerned about bloat, as Joey has had a few instances which seemed to be gas-related and very mild cases of bloat. According to the last Purdue study on bloat, one of the recommendations was to NOT use raised bowls, so I feed Joey on a cookie pan on the floor. Of course he is only about a foot or foot and a half tall, so leaning over isn't too difficult for him. I also like the cookie pan (or a muffin pan can be used) because it slows down his eating a bit.
I am still a little confused as to why Purdue recommended non-raised bowls, unless the dog takes in less air that way, which can cause excess gas and bloat, but since I am concerned with bloat, I am taking their recommendation to heart. Of course, I still have Joey's water bowl elevated, so it's a bit of a mixed bag.
If anyone can find the actual Purdue study on line, I'd love to have the link.
