What is the recommendation for feeding and exercising a dog - especially for deep-chested breeds that are prone to bloat? Is it better to walk a dog first thing in the morning and then wait and hour and feed him/her or feed first, wait an hour and then exercise?

Here are precautions to take to help prevent this deadly condition:

I'm still not clear on whether or not you should add water to dry dog food. Does anyone know?
