Gastric dilation vovulus (GDV) or bloat is a common life threatening condition that affects many large breed and deep chested dogs. This condition involves the distention of the stomach, usually with gas and then a twisting of the stomach.

Why wait until a life threatening condition has occurred? A preventative, minimally invasive procedure is the highest standard for your pet.

Lifetime risk of GDV is about 23%
