Research was conducted to determine whether gastric peristalsis originates during the feeding of dogs with a liquid diet. Results showed that peristalsis does not effect evacuation of liquid from the stomach. Stomach liquids are evacuated under the effect of tonic contraction of gastric walls, but peristalsis in a stomach filled with liquid always occurs.
