Author(s):

Abstract:
A 10 month old German shepherd dog was presented with a complaint of ingestion of foreign bodies. Clinical assessment revealed the animal to be active and in no pain or distress. A survey radiograph was taken in the lateral and ventrodorsal views, and it showed that the intestines contained radiopaque foreign materials. To remove the foreign bodies, enterotomy was decided upon. Anaesthesia was achieved by administration of xylazine Hcl @ 1 mg/kg bwt. and ketamine Hcl 5 mg/kg bwt. intramuscularly. Following surgery, antibiotics and painkillers were kept up, and daily dressing was suggested. The animal recovered uneventfully and without any complications.
