Abstract:
A four-month-old Mongrel dog was presented to Veterinary Clinical Complex, Rajendranagar with the history of stomach discomfort, intermittent vomiting, inappetence, tenesmus, melena and rectal prolapse. A coiled sausage-shaped mass was felt on deep palpation and pain was experienced by the dog. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed bull’s eye appearance in the intestine which confirmed the case as intussusception. The animal was hydrated and stabilised with intravenous fluids prior to surgery. Preoperative surgical procedures were performed in a standard manner. Under general anaesthesia, an emergency laparotomy was performed to reconstruct by using standard surgical technique of reduction, resection and end to end anastomosis. The laparotomy wound incision was closed in regular manner. Postoperatively, the dog was treated with intravenous fluids (inj. DNS, RL for 15 days and inj. Haemaccel for 3 days), antibiotic (inj. Ceftriaxone @ 20 mg/kg I/M for 5 days), analgesic (inj. Meloxicam @ 0.2 mg/kg I/M for 3days) were given. Regular antiseptic dressing was performed. Initially the dog was fed on liquid diet from 5th post-operative day followed by gradual transition to semi solid food from 10th day and subsequently to conventional meals. The skin sutures were removed on the fifteenth post-operative day, and the dog recovered uneventfully without any further complications.
