Hi

I'm a mini owner so a bit out of my territory but a number of our standard owners have done the gastropexy. As I understand it, the procedure is to stop or reduce the torsion of the stomach, it doesn't stop the bloating itself. They're both aspects of Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus (GDV). I think by preventing the torsion of the stomach, additional minutes are bought to get to a vet or otherwise minimize the bloating.

I know our spoo owners will be by shortly to give better information. Til then, if you search gastropexy or bloat above in Search Community or Advanced Search you'll find useful info.
