You are correct. I have read NEVER to elevate the food and water bowls with dogs that are predisposed to bloat. Boxers are more likely to suffer bloat because of their deep chests according to a bunch of articles I have read.

This is it! She was on the fish one before, then they switched her over to higher protein mixes when trying to bulk up the puppy. Thanks for the help everyone

Senseofsmell - sorry for your gas issues at home, but I gotta say a laughed when I read your post (guess it was the comical way it was written)

Treats and / or people food can also cause "gas", but yes something in the food is to blame.
