Daisy - my heart
There's phases within phases. Daisy was in early Phase 1, not the later Phase 1 where the stomach twists.Wow thank you for that - I have read it carefully and will have my hubby do the same! I am curious though, about Phase III - it says that "death is imminent" but in the treatment section it says that the dr. will remove part of the stomach and spleen, but then it also says that "it is no longer possible to save the dogs life" - Which is it? Can the dog be saved with surgery in this phase, or will the dog die no matter what?
In the latter part of Phase III, there's nothing that can be done. When shock becomes irreversible, death is certain.
It doesn't take very long to go from Phase 1 to Phase III. Even if you only suspect bloat, you need to go to the vet immediately.
