Drake the Rotweiler who is my faithful companion is one year six months
old. He has been diagnosed with gastric dilatation-volvulus, or GDV.
Commonly know as Bloat. This condition starts when the stomach becomes
distended with gas, causing it to twist. Once this happens, the
esophagus is closed, so the dog has no way to relieve the pressure. Hehas difficulty in defecation and urinating. This condition is deadly if not treated. Drake would need maybe more than one surgery to correct
Normally Drake is a happy dog who likes to play with his
older brother Jeff. He likes to go for the legs, When they play about.
Recently he has become so bloated he has difficulty in running. And
keeping up. It would mean the world to me if I can save him. And
continue to have my friend for many long years.
Kindly share with someone who loves pets and would like to see one happy and well.
