Stomach 'Tac', Bloat Prevention??
Yes, I searched, couldn't find what I was looking for.
Our 8 month shepherd may get spayed in the not to distant future. The Vet asked right away if we would want the stomach 'tac' at the same time? I said I'll look into it.
We already 'free feed' with a higher quality food. I'm aware of most things mentioned to try to prevent bloat, exercise caution after eating & drinking, elevated bowls(not) etc..
Right now my research has me questioning the idea of a stomach 'tac'. The Vet said it's also a longer recovery time. Then I read the sad stories about dogs that had bloat.
Is this stomach tac worth doing? I see females are a bit less likely to get bloat.
Just don't want to put her through more than we have to, without good reason. Thanks
