Bloat ranks high up on the list of disorders that affect dogs. Bloat in dogs is deadly with animals becoming critically ill if immediate treatment is not given.
– The exact cause of bloat in dogs is not known. Bloat causes the stomach to twist and fill up with gas.
– Symptoms of bloat are a distended stomach accompanied by panting, drooling, and walking around. The dog will also try to vomit but bring nothing up.
– Bloat is a life-threatening emergency in dogs and you should get them to a veterinarian as fast as possible.
The only way to treat it is to go into their abdomen surgically and untwist the stomach. The stomach is then sutured to the body wall to prevent it from twisting again. This is called a gastropexy.
