Bailey had surgery for bloat today. Suddenly stopped eating yesterday. Looked entirely depressed and not his usual self today that there was no question - he HAD to be seen by the vet. So glad we did.
Vet has operated and suggested Bailey might have chronic gastric vovulus. The good news is the vet reports his stomach and spleen are ok but there are signs of limited gastric necrosis. Does anyone know what the implications of this is? Are we in for a tough time ahead? Will this effect his recovery/survival chances.
