Preventative Bloat Procedure on Puppy?
Shya will be spayed at 6 months, and the vet recommended that while she is 'out' they can go in and induce some scar tissue to form between her stomach and abdominal wall to help keep the stomach in place should she ever have a bloat episode. I have never heard of this procedure so I wanted to hear from the board particularly on a few questions:
1. How effective is it?
2. Is it commonly done on a puppy?
3. Are there any side affects or complications that could occur?
Thanks for any input. Sorry if this has been asked on the board before, but I don't even know what it's called to search for it.
