Author(s):

Abstract:
A three-year-old cat, showing symptoms of dysphagia, retching, ptyalism, lack of appetite, and evident discomfort, was presented to the Veterinary Clinical Complex, CVSc and AH, OUAT, Bhubaneswar. Medical history revealed that the cat had been fed chicken bones two days prior to the consultation. A comprehensive physical examination confirmed the presence of a foreign body obstruction in the proximal-cervical oesophageal region. Radiographic images revealed a distinct and highly visible foreign body of significant radiodensity lodged in the proximal cervical oesophagus, leading to the diagnosis of an oesophageal obstruction. Manual extraction of the foreign body was possible using throat forceps under general anaesthesia.
