Caring for your pet means being aware of potential threats to their health and wellbeing. A few common, but serious conditions frequently afflicting pets is abdominal pain or swelling. This can be referred to as bloat, and may even be gastric dilation/volvulus or GDV. These issues require the immediate services of an emergency vet to help save your dog's life. East Valley Emergency Pet Clinic is proud to provide top quality veterinarian and emergency services to the residents of Diamond Bar CA.
Treating Abdominal Pain and Swelling or GDV
Sometimes a dog’s abdomen can become swollen (or bloated) as a result of the ingestion of foreign materials, gas, food, or fluid. When this occurs, it poses a serious risk to your dog’s well being. A swollen stomach may also be an indication of Heartworm which is a serious and far too common condition for pets. This serious issue can be complicated by another serious gastrointestinal issue called gastric dilation/volvulus. This is a condition in which the stomach twists. Some of the warning signs of this life-threatening condition include restlessness, retching, collapse, pale mucous membranes, weakness, depression, and cool extremities. If you notice any of these signs, don't hesitate to seek immediate veterinarian treatment from our top team of professionals who are ready to help you and your pet.
