Laparoscopic Gastropexy reduces gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) also known as bloating in large breed dogs. Many large chested dogs are prone to a digestive disorder called GDV or “bloat”. The condition occurs when the dog’s stomach fills with gas and twists, cutting off blood and oxygen to the stomach. This condition is extremely painful, and if not treated urgently will result in death.
