Kennels and Stomach Torsion

Last week I was talking with ndozo about a veterinarian and kennel where my Akita dog Tsuki had stayed some years ago.

When I came to pick her up, she clearly was not well.. I talked to the vet there who said I should take her right to the emergency veterinary hospital in the next town. She had stomach bloat and torsion. She would only survive with surgery. I told them to do the surgery. She was ten then and lived another four years. ndozo said that was odd. Her dog also had bloat after staying at a kennel. I had been reading the book "Marley and Me", the author's story about living with a very wild though lovable yellow lab. This week I finished the book.

I was surprised to read that Marley also got stomach bloat and torsion while staying at a kennel-veterinarian. The author has received a lot of email from people with their dog stories.
