After having two lucky escapes with bloat,in the last three years, yesterday we took Dillon to have an operation to stitch his stomach to his rib cage, so if he bloats again his stomach can't twist. It was quite a big op, but he's recovering well, back to the vets next Monday for a check up and stitches come out in two weeks.

It's going to be an interesting 2 weeks, 4 small meals each day no jumping on the bed or sofa, he has to wear his lead in the garden and only allowed very short toilet walks.

My goodness! I didn't know such a thing was possible. Wishing Dillon all the best for a speedy recovery and a great many happy, bloat-free years to come. x

My Lola had bloat at 2 yrs old where I nearly lost her, her stomach had twisted at both ends. The vet stitched her stomach in 3 places to secure it. She's never had any problems since and she's now 11 1/2 yrs and enjoys a good roll round on the lawn every day. The chances were high that it would have happened again so I'm so glad the vet did it at the time as I would not wish to go through that agonising night a second time. Good move for Dillon and I'm sure it will take the worry from you. Hope you have many happy trouble free years together

His doing fine and his scar is healing lovely, having trouble keeping him quiet, thinking of hobbling him Laughing

Back to the vets in the morning for a check up.

Thanks. x

I agree about keeping them quiet--how is that done? I think it must be one of the hardest part of dog ownership. Wink

Update

We took Dillon to the vets this morning for a after operation check up, he is pleased with his progress and is healing well and can now go for short 10-15 minute walks twice a day.

Back again on the 9th to have the stitches removed.
