History: 7 year old lab with sudden onset of a painful abdomen and trying to vomit but nothing is coming up.


What is wrong with this dog
The Answer is:  The conditon is called GDV or Gastric Dilation with Volvulous.  Otherwise known as bloat.  It occurs when a deep chested dog eats food/water and shortly after becomes active.  The ingesta in it’s stomach sloshes around until the stomach flips over on itself, thus trapping gas in the stomach. This is a life threatening situation and is considered an emergency.
