I’m totally freaking out right now. Ok maybe those are strong words. I’m exhausted mentally and physically so everything is magnified.
But I’m kinda upset. I just read a blog that Mimi wrote and I found out that a dog should rest an hour before and after eating, to prevent bloat. I don’t remember ever finding this out. I can’t imagine I would have forgotten something so important. I mean I know school just about killed me, but you’d think I’d remember something like that. I mean, Jayden gets plenty of rest before eating in the mornings since I feed him upon awakening, and usually he gets plenty of rest before we leave in the mornings. And at dinner he gets rest before and after eating, though today he was pretty active up until dinner.
I just can’t believe I didn’t know this. Did my instructor at school just fail to mention it? I mean I remember them talking about the feeding schedule so we’d know when the dogs would have to relieve. But to prevent bloat??? How did I not know that???
