J Radhakrishna Rao, MS Didugu and K Kishore
A 4.5 month old male mongrel pup weighing 7.5 kg was referred to Veterinary Clinical Complex, Bhoiguda, College of Veterinary Science, P.V. Narsimha Rao Telangana Veterinary University, Hyderabad with a history of loss of activity and regurgitation/emesis episodes within 30 minutes to 3 hours post-feeding since 2 months. There was anterior abdominal distension and tucked up posterior abdomen observed. The survey and barium radiographs revealed dilated stomach, thickened pyloric area and suggested delayed gastric emptying. Exploratory laparotomy confirmed presence of obstructing masses above the pyloric sphincter. Pylorotomy was performed and three polypoid lesions obstructing the gastric outflow were excised. The pup was placed on antibiotic therapy for a week, antacid and supportive therapy for a month. Normal feeding was restored after a week and the complaint of continuous regurgitative and emetic episodes were completely resolved. The histopathology report confirmed that the growths were of pyloric gland adenomas. The pup recovered uneventfully.
