Our expert says:
Bloat can be a common problem and is influenced by age, breed, anatomical build, food types (dry kibble is know to expand the stomach), over feeding and the ingestion of excessive fluids over a short period of time.
The condition may also be related to Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
I think that it is important to go to the vet to have a clinical examination to determine the aetiology of the bloat. Gastric bloat is of concern as it is a predisposing factor in the development of a gastric dilation and volvulus - twisted stomach
