An Elective Surgery That’s a Life Saver
'Bloat,' or gastric dilatation-volvulus, is a potential killer. One preventive surgery can ensure it won't strike.
The ravages of bloat, or gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV), often occur extremely fast. A dogís human family will leave early in the morning, then return late in the day to find their dog extremely ill or even dead. GDV is a condition in which the stomach twists in place, cutting off its own blood supply and compromising the blood supply to other organs.
