Is Your Dog at Risk for Bloat?

I recently read an interesting article about canine bloat. What I didn't know before reading this article is that this is the number one cause of death for several large and giant breeds. It is a life-threatening disorder and if left untreated, results in death.
In the article, they specifically focused on larger dogs such as the Great Dane, Bloodhound, Standard Poodle, Irish Wolfhound, German Shepherd, Irish Setter, Akita, or Boxer, because it's been determined that they are at greater risk.
