Gastric Dilatation Volvulus (GDV)
GDV, or severe stomach bloating and twisting caused by excessive gas accumulation, is a serious physical condition that can occur in dogs. Symptoms include a hunched-over appearance and repeated unsuccessful attempts to vomit. Stomach swelling can close the abdominal arteries and cause death within an hour due to organ damage from lack of blood circulation. If your dog shows signs of GDV it’s vital to bring them to your vet immediately for emergency care.
