"If you feed a raw diet with bones.....no need to tack. Commercial dog food, there's your problem....my opinion. Sarah"
This is not the case. I've known several dogs that have had bloat and torsion even on raw food.
I highly recommend tacking regardless of diet.

I would never tack a dog. Your gut is mobile for a reason....there is also GVD for a reason. Investigate the cause, don't fear for the symptom.

can you imagine jackal, coyote, wolf, fox with allergy to meat?
now take a look at nearest topic in regard of raw feeding and read about issues, arising upon switching food from processed to raw.
how badly must be screwed up physiology/digestive system of the carnivore/scavenger (dogs by default are those), if raw meal equal to death sentence.
even if there are possibility of passing bloat issue through genes as you say, in natural environment animal with such problem most likely will die without leaving descendants. under human care life of such animal with encouragement from veterinarian cartel will be sustained and multiply it's own problems through the breeding.
