TheDogPlace launched 1989 as the "World's First Public Website" Welcome to TheDogPlace Video Theater, 1st to use sight and sound to entertain and inform.




Watch! puzzled owner’s video as their dog's gastric distress (bloat) becomes twisting torsion that required emergency surgery to prevent agonizing death.





This video, courtesy of Akita Rescue, shows an Akita going from the middle to late middle stages of bloat. We thank the owners for having the foresight to grab a video camera to record his strange behavior. As the bloat advanced into gastric torsion, they realized something was terribly wrong and rushed him to the emergency veterinarian who saved the dog.


Most dogs do not survive bloat when it advances to gastric torsion.  Prevention is the key! Watch the video, then learn why Gas, Bloat, Gastric Torsion occurs more often in large or loose-skinned breeds but be aware that Bloat in Toy Dogs can occur but WHY it is less likely.
