Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
She is only six months old so nothing in the past. They are recommending it because she is a big dog.
Ok. I would get a second opinion on this. This is something that some vets may recommend for a Great Dane and or Weimaraner ( as bloat is more common in these breeds) but that is not common to suggest this,and in 26 years I have never seen a vet recommend this for a lab with no history of bloat.While possible bloat is not something we see often in this breed. Again I would suggest a second opinion before doing this as in my experience this is a little overboard and not something that would be normally recommended.In most cases a gastropexy is only done if a dog has an episode of bloat.I hope this helps. Please reply back if you have additional questions or concerns and I will be happy to continue.Candy
