    Gastric Dilatation is a potentially fatal gastrointestinal pathology caused by aerophagy. It is mainly caused by rapid consumption of food, excitation or exercising near the time of feeding, which promotes the entrance of air into the stomach (Robbins et al, 2011). With this work we aim to emphasize the care given by veterinary nurses in this pathology. FCT e CI&DETS (Pest – OE/CEU/UI4016/2011)
