In Loving Memory of "Enchanted's Teshir Zampara" 4/14/1999 to 8/30/2005
We lost Teshir to Bloat, on August 30, 2005 It was devastating. Anatolian owners please check into what Bloat is and
what can be done to keep your ASD from having it happen to them. There is a proceedure to attach thier stomache to another
organ or intestines, so that the stomache cannot twist.
Being a Large breed dog, Anatolians are predipositioned to having this happen. With every year of your dogs life
the risk increases, after age 5 the risk of bloat goes up cosiderably.
I went to bed with a healthy, happy, ASD. I woke up to find him critically ill, and dying. I had never heard of bloat,
nor did I know Anatolians were prone to getting it.
If I had known, I could have prevented his death, with a simple surgical proceedure, that can be done at the same time
you have your pet spayed or nuetered, they can sew the stomache to something so it can't twist.
In memory of "Teshir" please protect your ASD from bloat.
