As many of you already know I posted a web site to warn about the dangers of Bloat. If you haven't checked out the site please do at: http://home.flash.net/~jdebess/index.htm About once a month I receive an email from someone through this site. Unfortunately most are from people who have lost their pet and find my site while researching the condition. A few are from survivors like my old Jake. I received this email this morning: "Thank you for your web site. I just lost my dog this evening with the same problem. The vet tried unsuccessfully to try and get the gas out with the tube but she didn’t make it. She actually died in the car on the way to the vet. We only had 15-20 minutes with her. This is such a loss to our family as she was only 8 years old. She was a rottweiler, approx. 120 lbs. Things were such a blur at the vet, I really didn’t understand what had happened or what caused it. I felt like we let her down in some way, but the vet told us it wasn’t anything that we did. In our case our dog didn’t even eat anything first. She was fine and then started foaming at the mouth and then her stomach started to get bloated. We rushed her right then, but we didn’t get her there in time. Thanks for the website and thanks for letting me tell my story. In loving memory of Storm. Storm’s Mom" Lets all say a little prayer for Storm and his mom.
