Pet Gastropexy Surgery in Lambertville, MI

Gastropexy is a surgical technique in which the stomach is permanently connected to the body wall to maintain it in place. This is typically carried out concurrently with your dog’s spaying or neutering, but it is possible to do it at any point during your pet’s life.

Breeds of dogs with deep chests, including Great Danes, Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Shepherds, and many more, are susceptible to a disorder known as gastric dilation and volvulus, or GDV. The stomach rotates after filling with gas during a GDV. The only course of action for this serious ailment is emergency surgery. A GDV is prevented by gastropexy because it prevents the stomach from spinning.
