Gastric foreign body

This naughty little man managed to eat a large part of plastic fencing...A MONTH AGO!! And only started showing clinical signs this past weekend



We did abdominal x-rays that didn't show much wrong but on ultrasound we could see a possible blockage in the stomach. An exploratory laparotomy revealed a stomach full of hard pieces of plastic that got entangled with a bunch of other material to form a large blockage in the stomach. Another piece of plastic was also removed from the small intestines.


The little man is doing well and ready to eat anything he sees just 1 day post surgery.
