Bloat is an extremely serious canine condition which affects large breeds more than small ones, but it can affect any breed and various other animals too. I recently lost a sheep to bloat, and never even knew it existed in sheep. It is basically a build of stomach gases causing sudden expansion and twisting of the gut or rapid expansion of the stomach lining. Our beloved Danes are obviously more susceptible than most breeds simply due to their enormous size.

Bloat is a DEADLY condition which can kill very quickly, so immediate emergency veterinary treatment is ESSENTIAL if you suspect your dog has bloat. Here are a few useful links for more information about this horrible condition:

Northern New Jersey Great Dane Club - Excellent detailed explanation, MUST read for ALL Dane owners.

WebMD - In depth explanation by medical experts
