Bloat is potentially deadly. For kibble feeders, I would offer 2-3 scheduled meals daily. Make sure your dog remains quiet for about 1.5-2 hrs after each meal. Adding in a quality probiotic and digestive enzyme is always a good idea. Never allow your dog to fill on water to cool them off. If your dog has been playing and is excessively panting, pick the water up until panting stops and then place it back down.

I’m a raw feeder so we have less risk for bloat. I switched my crew to raised food dishes about 5 years ago. They seem far more comfortable when eating. We also have quiet time after our meals and follow the same rules for water after playing. I can say that I have never experienced bloat in the 20 years of owning boxers and we have any where from 5-8 living with us at any given time.

I follow the same rules for feeding I do feed twice a day I feed very early in the morning so they have a good 3 hrs before exercising after eating usually they get a scrambled egg too when I am eating my breakfast. Then they eat in the evening again before we go to bed I have used raised feeders as well I was thinking they are swallowing less air that way and will take their time eating as they are at a comfortable height.
