Abstract

This medical record of 19 dogs with esophageal and/or gastric foreign bodies (FBs) that underwent endoscopic removal from 2009 to 2011 was retrospectively reviewed. Foreign bodies were successfully removed in 18/19 dogs, and just 1 dog failed to remove FB using endoscopy. Eighteen dogs had a good prognosis without severe complications after FB removal, whereas one dog died on 8 days after endoscopy. Although all dogs of this report were small breeds, most cases have good prognosis after FB removal. According to the present study, esophagogastric FBs induced by varied materials were removed successful by endoscopic and surgical treatment. The digestive system of the dog is structurally and functionally very similar to the human. Thus, we hope that this study could help to develop the canine digestive organ disease model.
