New Member-Gastroplexy pro or con?

Hi-
New to the forum and thought this would be a great way to exchange, share and learn, so forgive me if I don't have this down yet. I own 4 pets, 2 Newfoundlands, female aged 2 and a male age 11 and two cats, a female aged 19 and a male aged 12. Have my hands full with a bunch of seniors and love every second of it .

Our female Newfie we got from the same breeder as our first newf, she was about a 1-1/2 years old, healthy and she had not been spayed yet. We plan to have her spayed very soon and our vets are recommending that she have gastroplexy (stomach tacking) done at the same time given that she's a giant breed. Our 11 yr old male has not been tacked. My research seems pretty positive so far, but I still have concerns. You don't remove the appendix just because you might get appendicitis. Can anyone share their experience with their dog having had the procedure or if they decided against it and why? Thank you-have a good day.

welcome to the forum

on the question, i know of people who have had the procedure done, during the spay, without problems, no one i've talked to has had a problem from it. i also know people who have lost/nearly lost their pet from bloat... personally, i would have the procedure done
