Abstract:
A Spitz bitch of 3yrs old was brought to the Veterinary Clinical Complex, with a history of foreign body ingestion, making frequent attempts to defecate, vocalizing with pain during defecation and trying to lick at the anus. All the vital signs were within the normal range. No foreign bodies were found in the oral cavity. Lateral radiograph of abdomen showed a penetrating foreign body at the level of rectum. Per rectal examination under general anaesthesia, revealed a sewing needle with thread, penetrating dorsal wall of the rectum. The needle was manipulated and released from the dorsal wall of rectum with left index finger and the thread was grasped with the right hand. The foreign body was slowly and carefully retrieved from the rectum and the bitch showed uneventful recovery.
