How to use "Bloat" in context?

Bloat is an adverse condition in a foal caused by overfeeding. Foals overfed to obesity will experience bloat, where their intestines will become enlarged and they will suffer from colic, hoof wall deformity, and/or founder. Foals who are not obese may also develop bloat if they are overfed, but the cause is not always clear. It can be a mystery what creates the vicious cycle of overfeeding and bloat, but it is not a cycling problem that resolves spontaneously. That is why it is important to take corrective actions when bloat is suspected and prevent it from becoming a serious issue.
