We recently lost our Akita to a stomach roll over while he was at the Vet. We were just leaving for a vacation trip. He was only there overnight. He just turned 2 yrs old -- we were devastated. To say the least, it ruined our vacation, but we still hold ourselves accountable because we feel his overwhelming anxiety caused his death. Is this a problem with Chinese Foo Dog's? We were told it's a rare happening but sometimes common in large chested dogs.



I am sorry for your loss. Large breed dogs such as the Akita have a stomach that is not attached to the lining of the rib cage, making bloat and a twisted stomach easier for large and giant breed dogs. The Chinese Foo Dog is considered a large breed dog as well, meaning that the ability is there; however there are some things that you can do to prevent it. Feed the dog multiple meals instead of one large one such as twice a day. Not allowing your dog to exercise for 30 minutes after he/she eats and preventing stress/anxiety right after eating. A twisted stomach is rare in this breed, but by putting as much on your side to prevent it is a good idea as well.


We had a Chinese Foo for 13 yrs. He was a great dog, great with kids and all animals, great personality. Would get one again.

My Female Chinese Foo had the best and most mellow personality. She was very accepting and good with my niece and other kids. She did not have a high energy level but loved to go on mile long walks and was great on road trips. I had mine for fourteen years and would like to have another. Hope that helps!
