    I was told bu a vet to add water to kibble, soup like, to get the dogs to drink more and eat less while feeling full.
    Would this not also increase the risk of bloat? I thought moistening food was a no no. Let alone drawning the meal.
    Please advise before I feed.

    Moistening food is only a problem if the food in question happens to be preserved with citric acid. In that instance, soaking it would increase the risk of bloat by a large margin.

    If it uses a different preservative though, as most do, then it is a non-issue.
