Ice Water and Bloat

We have been made aware that there is a lot of worry and rumor spreading about ice water causing dogs to bloat. This is a myth! Ice does not cause bloat in dogs and can actually be a great treat on a hot day! 

What causes trouble is when a dog consumes HUGE amounts of any temperature water--especially after or before exercise--this can most certainly cause bloat. Bloat can also be caused by consuming large amounts of food before or after exercise.

The article below may help to clarify more
