Exercise and Feeding

I have read and read different articles about how long to wait to feed your dog after playing - training or what ever and the amount of time that should pass after feeding before you turn them loose .

One of our Vets told us that it takes 2 hours to empty there stomachs , yet have seen ours go out 3 hours later and eat some grass and then vomit and it would still have lots of food in it .

Just wondering what guild lines you all us , we do use the 2 hours before and after .

From what I've read and what our vet told us - at least two hours, especially in breeds prone to bloat so that's what we go by.

She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

We have always observed the 1 hour before and 2 hours after. The only 2 episodes we have had related to torsion in 45 years had nothing to do with their feeding schedule.

I wait until they are no longer breathing hard to feed. I've not had an issue yet. I also wait an hour after eating before any type of exercise.
