Doubtful on anything elective. What company do you have? To pull that off your vet would have to be on the same page and have it written up as a necessary operation.Acute Bloat-Help
My Gsd had acute bloat last night. I figured it out rather quickly so I got him to the vet. They thought his stomach twisted bit after they inserted the tube it started to deflate slightly so they took another x-ray and confirmed it was acute bloat. Gave IV fluids and we took him home for 4 hrs. (Since he would have been left there alone). Took him back this morning when they opened for tube insertion and more fluids. They said all the gas was gone but we're still waiting for him pass the food that was still there.
I was thinking of taking him to CSU for a gastroplastie (I'm sure that spelled wrong.)
Your thoughts on this or advice would be appreciated.
I have pet plan insurance, does anyone know if this is covered or is it considered elective.
