My 3 1/2 year old GSD Damien just had emergency surgery for bloat on Tuesday night. His stomach had completely flipped, it was so bad they couldn't even get a tube down him, and when they stuck him with a needle to relieve pressure all they got was some gunk. I was very worried about him especially since he was showing signs for about 4 hrs before we got him to the emergency vet. Anyways, So far so good we picked him up Thursday and he is in great spirit. My question is does this mean we are in good shape for now or should I be watching him close, and if so what am I looking for. I now know the signs and symptoms of bloat but is there anything else? The vet said he should be good since they tacked his stomach to his rib, but I am just paranoid I guess. Losing my best friend would be devastating. Thanks for your time.
