I haven't been here for awhile and a lot of you probably don't know me and my dogs, but this is a special day for us. Our boy Keefer turns 12 years old! It's especially sweet because he bloated Sunday night and needed emergency surgery to correct a 180 degree torsion. I recognized the signs that it could be bloat right away, although I hoped I was wrong, and we live less than 5 miles from an emergency vet, which saved his life. He came through the surgery well and is doing great.







We are so thankful and happy that he is here with us to celebrate his 12th birthday. wub

So very happy that Keefer is doing well and that you had the knowledge and presence of mind to take him in to the ER right away. I think all of us worry about bloat in our dogs. I've been worried about Heidi a couple of times in the past and even took her in to the ER once because I was afraid that she had bloated, but luckily, it was just her sensitive stomach acting up again. We really have to be on our toes for our special senior doggies! Glad to see you here!
