Abstract:

Foreign body obstruction is mainly presented as an emergency condition in dogs and cats. The condition is mostly commonly seen in young playful pet animals. An eight months old Labrador retriever dog presented with the complaint of persistent vomiting and absence of defaecation was subjected to physical and radiographic examination to tentatively diagnose the condition as foreign body obstruction. The animal was subjected to exploratory laparotomy to remove the foreign body and thereby confirming the tentative diagnosis. Post operatively the patient was maintained in fluids, antibiotics and other supportive therapy for five days. The animal was reported to have recovered uneventfully.
