Hello Garrech and Canagan,
Welcome to this site! You will find all sorts of topics here, something for everyone.
I do hope your boy makes a full recovery.You will find many people here with a serious concern for the breed.
There is a new health data collection to be started soon in Britain, I just read the information in the Irish Setter Breeder's Club Newsletter. So maybe something is moving at last...
all the best
Susan

Hi all, sorry to read about all the problems with your boy, bloat is a real worry for anybody with an irish, may I also suggest looking into a food called Orijen, you only need small amounts and this may help.
Thanks for sharing your story with us .
Regards Neil

Hi Peter and Elaine,
Just received your reply, thats our eldest Jake, he is 6, Oscar is now 2, read somewhere that old time vets always suggested milk of magnesia to help with a dog indegestion, never tried it with ours, good luck and keep in touch.
Regards Neil.

i am so very sorry to hear of your very ill dog and hope eventually you can get him back to better health.its so dreadful when these illnesses rear their ugly heads especially in dogs so young.ive also read your website on what its like from your dogs point of view.its so very sad. i lost my first irish to bloat she was 14 and its horrific to watch how distressed and in pain they are we now feed our dogs on tripe.
my layla who is 5 as the late onset of pra and she is totally blind now.theres still plenty of tears because as you say they should be running around doing things normal setters do.the only consolation i have is that its a painless disease and she is adapting pretty well to the situation
once again welcome to the site

Hi Peter and Elaine,
just thinking of you and the dogs! not that I have experienced bloat before....I did have a dog who lived to nearly 15 but tended to have a gurgly stomach in the morning....but that would be cured instantly by feeding him a little tit bit like a piece of cheese! I would like to hear about the specialist diagnosis next week.
