Successful surgical management of gastro-intestinal linear foreign body in a 9 months old Indian male dog: A case report

Author(s): Sowjanya S, Rahul J, Anali K, Ajay Verma and Muralidhar D
Abstract: An Indian male dog aged 9months weighing 20kg was presented to the hospital with a history of intermittent multiple episodes of vomitions, anorexia, lethargy. On physical examination there was no abnormality found except dullness. Radiographic examination of abdomen revealed gas filled intestinal loops with some small radio-opaque structures in the lumen suggestive of foreign body obstruction. Ultrasonographic examination confirmed the diagnosis with a significant target appearance of intestinal loops along with presence of a wide hyperechoic linear foreign body with stripes in the lumen of distended bowel loops. The Gastro-enterotomy was performed and the nylon metallic curling decorative ribbon was recovered. An uneventful recovery was noticed without any complications after one week of proper post operative antibiotic therapy and fluid administration.
