Using dry dog food label information, the hypothesis was tested that the risk of gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) increases with an increasing number of soy and cereal ingredients and a decreasing number of animal-protein ingredients among the first four ingredients. A nested case-control study was conducted with 85 GDV cases and 194 controls consuming a single brand and variety of dry food. Neither an increasing number of animal-protein ingredients (P=0.79) nor an increasing number of soy and…

Gastric foreign body as a risk factor for gastric dilatation and volvulus in dogs.

TLDR
The study findings suggested that a large- or giant-breed dog with a gFB was approximately 5 times as likely to develop GDV as a similar dog with no gFB, and there was a strong correlation between gFB and GDV in dogs.

Epidemiology of gastric dilation and gastric dilatation volvulus in New Zealand working farm dogs

TLDR
A retrospective study was done on GDV cases in New Zealand working farm dogs and the risk factors for GD(V) were breed and age, and the odds of disease in Huntaways were 19 times higher than in other breeds.

The canine gut microbiome is associated with higher risk of gastric dilatation-volvulus and high risk genetic variants of the immune system

TLDR
The microbiome in GDV was altered by an expansion of a minor lineage and was associated with specific alleles of both innate and adaptive immunity genes, consistent with the hypothesis that immune genes may play a role in predisposition to GDV by altering the gut microbiome.

13C-sodium acetate breath test for evaluation of gastric emptying times in dogs with gastric dilatation-volvulus.

TLDR
Surprisingly, dogs after GDV surgery and gastropexy had shorter gastric emptying times than dogs undergoing laparotomy for reasons other than GDV, but still prolonged compared to healthy controls.

A retrospective study of gastric dilatation and gastric dilatation and volvulus in working farm dogs in New Zealand

TLDR
The risk of a case of GD or GDV being a Huntaway was significantly higher than for a dog presenting as a trauma case, however the influences of the season of the year, climatic factors and nutritional factors on the pathogenesis need to be identified before adequate preventative measures can be recommended.

Identification of Genetic Susceptibility Factors Associated with Canine Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus

TLDR
An inter-breed genome-wide association analysis of 253 dogs from ten breeds provides important new clues to canine GDV risk factors and facilitates generation of hypotheses regarding the genetic and molecular underpinnings this syndrome.

Observations and analysis of risk factors for GDV in a single institution: a case-control study

TLDR
The findings support previously identified risk factors in the development of GDV, but characteristics related to the dogs temperament warrant further investigation.

Mycotoxins in commercial dry pet food in China

TLDR
Investigating the occurrence of the most common mycotoxins in commercial dry dog food using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry showed that all these analytes could be found in the samples, and AFB1 concentration in all AFB1 positive samples exceeded the maximum limits set by the European Union.

Associations between gastric dilatation-volvulus in Great Danes and specific alleles of the canine immune-system genes DLA88, DRB1, and TLR5.

TLDR
The 3 GDV-associated alleles identified in this study may serve as diagnostic markers for identification of Great Danes at risk for GDV and additional research is needed to determine whether other dog breeds have the same genetic associations.

Diet-related risk factors for gastric dilatation-volvulus in dogs of high-risk breeds.

TLDR
Dogs fed a larger volume of food per meal were at a significantly increased risk of GDV, regardless of the number of meals fed daily, and the risk ofGDV was highest for dogs feeding a largerVolume of food once daily.

Influence of dietary composition on gastric emptying and motility in dogs: potential involvement in acute gastric dilatation.

TLDR
The data indicate that gastric motility and emptying in healthy large-breed dogs were not affected by dietary composition, and most large dogs are fed cereal-based food for reasons of cost and ease of use.

Influence of dietary composition on gastric emptying and motility in dogs: potential involvement in acute gastric dilatation.

TLDR
The data indicate that gastric motility and emptying in healthy large-breed dogs were not affected by dietary composition and these diets may have been wrongly incriminated as a predisposing factor in gastric dilatation-volvulus.

Small size of food particles and age as risk factors for gastric dilatation volvulus in great danes

TLDR
Feeding a diet including large pieces of meat may help to reduce the incidence of GDV in great danes, and increasing age was also a risk factor for GDV.

Multiple risk factors for the gastric dilatation-volvulus syndrome in dogs: a practitioner/owner case-control study.

TLDR
A study was conducted of 101 dogs that had acute episodes of gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) and 101 dogs with nonGDV-related problems, finding that the only factor that appeared to precipitate an acute episode of GDV was stress.

TLDR
The risk of GD increased with age but was not associated with gender, and no risk was attributed to intensity or duration of exercise, temperament, appetite, speed of eating, vomiting or diarrhoea.

Incidence of and breed-related risk factors for gastric dilatation-volvulus in dogs.

TLDR
The only breed-specific characteristic significantly associated with a decreased incidence of GDV was an owner-perceived personality trait of happiness.
