Gastropexy is a procedure that affixes the stomach to the abdominal wall. It is performed in an emergency setting when the stomach twists from its normal position and gas distends, a life threatening situation. In at-risk large breed dogs, a prophylactic pexy can be performed at a young age. The surgeons at Boulevard Veterinary Hospital can perform a laparoscopic assisted gastropexy for your at-risk pet. This procedure requires a smaller incision and allows for a quicker recovery. Please call reception to schedule a physical exam and consult.
