After reading about them on this board I bought the strips, too.

I didn't think about keeping them in various places, but I will now put a few in my car, my purse, etc.

Also - for any emergency program the directions to you emergency vet into your GPS if you aren't close. Don't wait until you need it - o do it now.

Thank you, Kris, for recommending the gas-x strips. That makes so much sense to me. I will get them.

Thanks, Lisa, for merging the the post into the thread. I agree with you on not endorsing the tubing. Only if I lived in a very remote place with an e-vet hours away, I might want to prepare for that. But most of us are better off popping gas-x and rushing the dog to the e-vet immediately, without wasting time on a risky procedure at which we are not skilled.

On the strips, the dosage is 1/2 of the caplets.

Thanks for sharing that video on bloat. It was tough to watch, brought back painful memories.

Thank goodness the dog recovered. Little does he know, he may be saving the life of many dogs in the future.

Not sure if this was shared as I haven't read the whole thread yet but my fav resource for bloat info is The Bloat Book. I shared a copy of it on disk for all my puppy buyers.

I started to watch the video and had to stop...will probably watch it bit by bit. It brought back to many memories of the night Thor died and I can only watch it with tears in my eyes.

How I wish a thread like this had been available before Thor bloated. I didn't even know what was wrong with him as I had never even heard of bloat before. I just thought he had an upset tummy, something he had quite frequently (he was such a 'nervy' dog and always suffered from upset tummy problems).

It wasn't just an upset tummy. It was bloat...and Thor died that night due to my ignorance. Please, read this thread again...and again...and again, until you know it by heart and know exactly what to do to save your dog.
