    Ohhh Karen! I'm soo sorry..I hadn't realized this had happened to sweet Maggie. You mustn't blame yourself for an instant. You did great to recognize she needed help and get her to the vet. I bet you were..and still are..so very worried. to Maggie and her mommy too!

    Fyi..my vet says Bully's ARE prone to bloat! And recommended against the raised dish for Jake.. I do use a slow feed ball and it has helped immensely...I honestly thought all deep or barrel chested breeds were at risk!

    I know ... I get all this conflicting information and just don't know what to do anymore!!! She is at risk from aspirating and pneumonia though so she's got the raised bowl. I'm just going to have to look out for all the signs of bloat too. The link brucep gave me gave ways to help stop bloat and apart from the raised bowl we are doing all of those already.

    As for the bloat ... I did bring that up to the vets but they said that bulldogs were not a breed that were particularly prone to it. Not that it couldn't happen they said ... but the danger of her aspirating again is MUCH greater than the danger of bloat.
    I don't know if you read gunnyboys post about how Gunny died but he or maybe it was Connie @Gunnys Mom put a website up of what all causes bloat and if you haven't read it I suggest you do....I was shocked and learned a lot..... @JAKEISGREAT what slow feed ball did you get??? Right now I am using the ghetto version and i have an oversized tennis ball in his dish and it does slow him down but I would like to get one that is made for the purpose....

    I ordered a porcelain one from amazon. It's great..I leave it in the dishwasher so it gets sanitized a few times a week. It has really helped Jake and I got the larger one.
