Default Bye-Bye Sadie Girl!!!

My brother & his girlfriend rescued Sadie (a Boxer) from a mean man 8 1/2 years ago who had her tied to a tree. He tried to use her for breeding, but because she was malnurished, she never got pregnant. The only human contact we believe she received was kicking from the man & abuse. My brother & girlfriend decided at that time they wanted a boxer & came across Sadie where the guy said just take her as long as you promise not to breed her (even tho she couldn't get preg). She was so afraid of my bro for the longest time. Eventually, they tried to breed, even with artificial insemination, but it never worked. They gave this baby girl the best life. Boat rides, nice bed inside the house, big yard to run, two new baby brother boxers that they adopted.
Friday night Sadie died a horrible death! She has always suffered from gas, as most boxers do. For some reason, her stomach flipped and she whined in pain all night. My poor brother & his girlfriend thought it was something that could wait til morning for the vet. We don't have an emergency after hours vet. They had her at the door 15 min. before the vet opened & saw people in there. Girlfriend banged on the door trying to seek help, and they ignored her running to the back. Came back to the door asking if they would be willling to pay emergency price since they weren't open yet. My bro said "Whatever-just help her!!!"
There was nothing they could do! I googled this problem. It said Bloat is more common in big dogs; more common in males than females. The symptoms were exactly what Sadie went through. I hate that she went through such a horrible death, but I know she had the best 8 1/2 years of life with my bro & his GF!!

REST IN PIECE SADIE!! YOU WERE VERY LOVED!!!!

Awww! Poor Sadie girl!
Unfortunately, bloat is very common i larger breed dogs. Our mastiffs always had down time after they ate or drank large amounts of water. Since they are bigger their stomache aren't attached to their ribs so it happens so easily. Gas plays a big roll in bloat as well.
Their is a surgery that can be done that we use to have done that attaches their stomach so that bloat can be prevented. If they still have the two male boxers they may want to look into it.

RIP SADIE GIRL!
So sorry for the loss of her

Thanks for the info! I googled it & found out they can give Gas X or anything with Simethicone in it to get rid of the gas bubbles. I'll let them know what you said so they have another option.

Yep, that sounds like bloat to me. I saw a lot of big breed dogs pass away from this when I worked in a vet clinic because the owners figured they could wait it out until morning not knowing how serious it actually was. I'm glad your brother and his girlfriend saved her and gave her a good life for the time she was here. May she rest in peace.
