In another emergency farm call, Dr. Pol must treat a dairy cow with a Left Displaced Abomasum, or a twisted stomach which means that one of the cow's four stomachs has floated to the top of the abdominal cavity. Dr. Pol will have to perform a procedure to suture that stomach to the wall of the cow's belly.
