One night Kylie was restless and trying to vomit but was unable to do so. She was rushed to the veterinary ER where X-rays were taken. Her veterinarian diagnosed her quickly with bloat and Kylie was rushed into surgery. She received a gastropexy (also known as stomach stapling) and remained hospitalized for the next four days.
Fortunately Kylie's bloat was caught early enough and she made a full recovery.
Kylie's dad said:
You were amazing during such a horrible time and I still am thankful for you everytime I look at her!
When Kylie enrolled she was eligible for an Embrace accident plan due to her age of 10 years at the time. Embrace considers bloat to be an accident.
