Gastropexy is a procedure that attaches the stomach to the abdominal wall. It is performed when the stomach twists from its normal position and gas distends, a life-threatening emergency. 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 (661) 942-1489 to schedule a physical exam and consultation.
