| Bloat and torsion are more common in AKC greyhounds than in the racing dogs. However, it does occur in them too.
I have had 2 greyhounds, both AKC, suffer from bloat & torsion. One died; one lived.
Neither of mine had the typical symptoms. I just knew when I looked at them that something was very wrong.

|With all my years with greyhounds, I've hardly seen this but heard it could happen.|

Thanks. She was older (10 yrs). We could have had the surgery, but we decided to not put the old gal through it. Her torsion occurred 10 days post-op, as did her nephew's (he's the one that lived).
