I told everyone at work about IVS

I absolutely loved the seminar and I learned so much. I told everyone at work that I am ONLY going to IVS seminars in the future. The other doctors are all interested and picking out their seminars to go to now!

Incisional Gastropexy Video

Just wanted to thank you for the video on incisional gastropexy. I did my first one yesterday for a friend on their shepherd during her spay. They have lost two dogs to GDV in the past and it was great to be able to give them some peace of mind and for me to do something different. After 24 years of doing this, it is nice to have something new to try…
