Reduce The Risk Of GDV
Gastropexy is the proactive step every responsible pet owner should consider to safeguard their beloved companions from the life-threatening risks of gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) also known as bloat.
What Is GDV?
Gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV), commonly known as bloat or twisted stomach.
GDV is a life-threatening emergency in which the stomach fills with gas and twists on itself.
This condition can rapidly lead to a decrease in blood flow to the stomach and other organs, potentially causing tissue damage, shock, and death.
Keyhole Gastropexy, also known as Laparoscopic Gastropexy is a minimally invasive technique.
It is performed using a laparoscope, a thin tube with a camera and light source, which allows the surgeon to view and perform the procedure through small incisions in the dogs abdomen.
This results in less trauma to the tissues, reduced postoperative pain and a quicker recovery.
This procedure can also be carried out as part as a keyhole spay.
