Have veterinary clients whose stomachs are in knots over their concern for gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) in their at-risk dogs? They want to do their utmost to ensure their dogs aren't affected by this life-threatening turn of events, so we worked with Jennifer Wardlaw, DVM, DACVS, to develop videos you can share directly with your clients once you raise the issue of GDV with them. 

The first video discusses what signs they should be on the lookout for in their dogs that mean an emergency visit to the veterinarian is called for, now!

The second video discusses what steps they can be taking to make sure this never ever happens to their precious pups in the first place. A prophylactic gastropexy is always an option, but there are some steps your clients can be taking themselves to prevent GDV.
