    Default Bulldog overate and Iím bot sure what to do.

    My boy Scully, heís a handful and well last night while I was outside with his brother he tipped the container and ate when I came in I was in shock. He finally lived his dream unlimited food. Itís hard to say how much he really ate. If I had to guess Iíd say 5 cups worth. So my question is. Has anyone else experienced this? Am I overreacting because I kinda wanna take him to the vet. Iím not home but my fiancť was. SHe said heís still hungry wants to eat. Is still drinking. Heís moving slowly and is bloated, as would anyone that overate. This happened about 8pm last night. He pooped about an hour after that. And heís for sure pooped about 1pm today. Heís able to lay normal.

    My question is, when should I be concerned itís been what 16+ hours. Iím worried about Bloat but thereís also That feeling if I take him to vet itís gonna be 500+ to tell me what we know. Any input is fine. I figured if he wasnít acting overly different after 12 hours heís just gonna have to pass it. Iím leaving work now to be with him. My fiancť works nights and I donít want him to poop his crate. I attached a pic of him so you could see how fat he is.

    Don't know too much about it, but from what I read, you only need to worry if gums are bright red or pale or if she tries unsuccessfully to vomit.
    Management (pasting from a website):
    You need to restrict her exercise closely.
    Leash to go out and only a slow walk.
    No food for 24 hours.
    Offer small amounts of water frequently.
    Expect diarrhea.

    He’ll be fine. Just give him time to poop it all out. You may find that his stool is a bit soft, maybe even loose. Exercise and water are important but not too much of either. If his belly becomes tender to the touch, get him to the Vet right away.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    So I got home yesterday about 3 hours after my fiancť left to work he did vomit but otherwise was fine glad I left work early cause he really had to poop. I skipped his dinner last night. He already looks less bloated. He looked really huge and booted. He was still wanting to eat what I was eating acting like his normal self. So overall I think heís fine. Just the whole ďbloatĒ
    Thing can be scary.

    Glad to hear he's ok ! Luckily bulldogs are not one of the breeds prone to bloat.
