Has anyone out there got any words of wisdom when caring for a dog recovering from an operation for Bloat (GDV). We have just come back from holiday to find out that Bailey had to have an emergency operation. He is fine apart from trying to keep him from jumping up. As directed he is being fed 4 small meals a day and only 10 min gentle walks but as the op was almost a week ago and he has five days until the stitches are removed, he is becoming a bit of a handful (again)!
If you pup was born on the 12.07.09 then I think a few pups from that litter have suffered bloat as I have been contacted by other people whose pups have also had the same condition. How old was your dog when this occurred?
