I am so glad Jasper is OK! The Gas-X was an incredibly excellent move!

When Abby got bloat she was coughing and extremely anxious. I thought she had something stuck in her throat. We were at the vet's within 20 minutes, even though I didn't know it was bloat, I knew it was something bad.

Rest easy good dog mom!

Still crazy after all these years.

As embarrassing as it is to admit, I keep the Gas-X on hand for me. LOL. I get chest (gas) cramps occasionally, so I always have it here. One of the breeders, maybe PG, mentioned squirting it on the tongue if you suspected bloat. I figured it wouldn't hurt anything even if it wasn't bloat. He sure didn't seem to mind it!

Bloat is my biggest fear too, like choking was when the kids were little

Thank goodness Jasper is alright!

How frightening! I am so glad all was well. I wonder what happened.. Pepper, huh? Isn't it sweet they come to us, trusting that we will " fix " things? What a relief when they can settle comfortably. .
We walk very evening before we eat also.. I am very paranoid of bloat.

I only wish I knew what had happened. He doesn't usually come in the room while we are eating. Honestly, he is just too polite. He never begs for food and normally will lie in the doorway or just stay in the kitchen licking the floor, just in case we might have dropped something.

He is a super momma's boy so I am not surprised he came to me when he was distressed. Actually, I was very happy he did! It seemed like it lasted forever, but I think it was less than 3-4 minutes.
