Bloat is another huge concern of mine (Nova has a lot of excess gas, like, way more than normal for a dog). She's raw fed and kept quiet after meals. You do what you can, and you can't let it worry you too much.
Thanks for the info and pictures! the pictures are great in my opninion

She is a beautiful girl! (So are you, lol) Are you in contact with her breeder much? You could find out if any of her poodle relatives have problems. Not all big dogs have problems, so her lineage is probably more important to her health than her size. Anyway she is turning out so nice! I can hardly wait to see what she looks like when she's grown up.

So far, Nova hasn't had any health problems, other than extreme gassiness which I have not been able to fix with diet. Not sure what's causing it. I hope she stays healthy, she has good hips (had them x-rayed a few months back) and I keep her at a healthy weight. Hopefully, Lou will remain a picture of health for the rest of her life Indiana makes a good point, you can find out a lot by looking at the pedigree and contacting the breeder. Nova was a rescue, but she is AKC registered and I've tracked her pedigree. Lots of hip, eye, and heart problems in her background, so we play the waiting game and I do what I can to contribute to good health (good diet, lots of exercise, good weight, minimal vaccines, etc etc).
