I have a 12 week old Great Dane. A vet told me that I should get the abdominal surgery to prevent bloat, should I?

Abby has tons of resources and preventative suggestions for bloat. If you trust your dog's vet, discuss the procedure to reassure yourself it's the best course. Or you might get a second opinion to be safe.

I know bloat is a problem in dames. But if you are careful and watch them many people have danes that live nice long lifes with out the surgery. I would call the breeder to see if they had it done. Or talk with another vet to see if it is really needed
