So I am wondering what bloat is. I've heard about it, and know it can be life threatening, but don't know much else. I was wondering if I could get that information from all of you :)
So..
1.) What is bloat, what causes it?
2.) How can you tell your pig is bloated?
3.) what is the best thing to do for a bloated pig?
4.) what should a vet do?
 
Bloat is basically the name of one symptom that can be caused by different things. Bloat is an emergency condition--a bloated pig is a very sick pig, and will act very sick.

Read the link bpatters gave for the details.
