|Thank you all for your wonderful responses. OttO, I am so sorry for your losses...
Sirius, I am still unsure about the toothpaste, becuse I was brushing Kaine's teeth everyday and Sorbitol is at the top of the list...Does anyone know any better dog toothpastes
I was feedind Kaine from an elevated bowl, then when I read that article in the GSD magazine, I switched to feeding him off the floor. Now, I'm not really sure which height is best...I know that kibble expands in the stomach and that expanding can have a lot to do with bloat...so would eating homecooked be safer or do you think the same rules would apply (rest 30 min-1 hour before meal and after meal)? So, it must be the gulping of air and water which means bloat would have something to do with the esophagus right?
Man, as much as I know about German Shepherds and dogs in general, bloat can be so confusing and frightening.
