Gastropexy (Stomach Tacking) 


A gastropexy is a surgical procedure that is sometimes performed in deep chested and large breed dogs to prevent gastric dilatation and volvulus (GDV), also known as “bloat”. A gastropexy may be performed prophylactically (as a preventive measure in a healthy dog predisposed to this condition) or may be done as part of the surgical management of GDV (to prevent recurrence after the stomach has been returned to its normal position).

Here are some breeds that are susceptible to bloat:

  • Great Danes
  • Saint Bernards
  • Irish Setters
  • Dachshunds 
  • Standard Poodles
