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