Bloat

Liaison: Beth Tallentire
Email: Sizzzle2@aol.com

Bloat (gastric dilation) occurs when fluid or ingesta accumulate in the stomach and are unable to escape due to a mechanical or functional obstruction of the gastroesophageal and pyloric openings. Bloat may occur with or without twisting (volvulus) of the stomach. When bloat is accompanied by twisting, it is a life threatening emergency.
