Gastropexy for Your Pet’s Well-Being
Our Commitment to Excellence:
At Sandringham Veterinary Hospital, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality care without the high costs often associated with referral hospitals.
At Sandringham Veterinary Hospital, we offer a vital surgical procedure known as Gastropexy that addresses common concerns and ensures the well-being of your beloved pet. By choosing Gastropexy, you provide your furry friend with a safer and healthier life.
Common Reasons for Considering Gastropexy:
Bloat Prevention: Large and deep-chested breeds are prone to a condition called gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV), or “bloat.” This condition can be life-threatening and requires immediate intervention. Gastropexy helps prevent the twisting of the stomach and the associated risks, ensuring your pet’s safety.
Dog Breeds With High Risk of Bloat: Large-breed and deep-chested dogs are at the highest risk of developing bloat. Predisposed breeds include:
● Great Danes (40% of Great Danes will experience bloat during their lifetime)
● Standard poodle
● Irish setter
● Irish wolfhound
● German shepherd
● Saint Bernard
The Benefits of Gastropexy:
Bloat Prevention: Gastropexy significantly reduces the risk of GDV, providing peace of mind for pet owners. GDV can be life-threatening, and Gastropexy acts as a proactive measure to keep your pet safe.
Surgery Convenience: If your pet is already undergoing surgery (dessexing), combining it with Gastropexy is convenient and efficient, saving your pet from the need for an additional procedure in the future.
The Gastropexy Procedure:
Our experienced veterinarians conduct Gastropexy to secure the stomach to the abdominal wall, preventing it from twisting or moving excessively. This simple and effective procedure can make a substantial difference in your pet’s overall health and safety.
