We had a good discussion about that just recently. Take a look at this thread:

I would definitely recommend it when you bring in a female for a spay--the vet is already in there, so why not?
For a male, the decision is a little trickier, because a neuter doesn't enter the body cavity and a gastropexy would be an extra stress for him.

There is a way to do a gastropexy laparoscopically, which is probably the best way to go for a male, but you'd need to find a vet experienced in the procedure.
