|I read that citric acid is not good for dogs that are prone to bloat. Nature's Variety Instinct, at least the limited ingredient food I have been feeding, has citric acid. Therefore, I am thinking I should NOT be adding moisture to this food. I also noticed that a small snack of this food fed a couple hours before bedtime seems to cause problems for Joey (gulping, swallowing, etc.) so that's a double sign I should not be doing it.
I don't know much about citric acid, except, of course, that it is (I assume) an acid, and some dogs DO get acid reflux, so it is one thing I'm going to stay away from. I am switching Joey to Canine Caviar. The vet has also suggested trying pepcid. Another person on Dogster was told to give Prilosec, as it is long lasting.
As to adding liquid when you feed kibble, I am concerned that Joey doesn't drink enough water. However, I am planning to keep doing what I do occasionally - give him about a third cup of water flavored with some pumpkin or other flavoring.
