Abstract
Chronic gastric instability (CGI) is part of the GDV complex and contributes to the pathophysiologic mechanism of volvulus. Clinical signs can be attributed to a flaccid and mobile stomach. This manuscript serves as a review of the literature surrounding CGI and presents a case where computerized tomography is utilized in combination with abdominal radiography to diagnose CGI. The patient was later euthanized after developing acute abdominal pain. Necropsy revealed a distended stomach with 180o rotation along its long axis. This case demonstrates that CGI and GDV share a continuum, and cases of CGI may progress to GDV without prophylactic surgical intervention.

Key words: Chronic GDV, Gastric Malpositioning, Chronic Gastric Torsion, Chronic Gastric Instability
