Editor Susan Chaney takes a look at the existing knowledge about gastric dilatation-volvulus, more commonly known as bloat, and examines a project that may dramatically affect it. The life-threatening condition has been associated with a variety of triggers, from genetic predisposition to diet and feeding methods.
