The surgeon flipped her stomach back and tacked it to the inside of her with 5 stitches so it would never happen again. The vet thinks it happened after Maddie fell over with a full stomach so that everything just sloshed around and flipped. Her recovery is going well and she even got to leave the animal hospital on Saturday evening. She's on a strict bland diet of boiled chicken, white rice, and cottage cheese. At least it makes me feel like there is something I can do for my poor girl by making her home cooked food. Hopefully she'll be good as new soon. And if you have any kind of larger dog - whether they have a big chest or not - be on the lookout for bloat (the second leading killer of dogs).
