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).
