Just finished removing an intestinal foreign body from a new clients dog. Part
of a tennis ball wrapped in cloth. X-rays were questionable for a foreign body
in multiple locations. After 20 plus years you just have a "GUT" feeling. I was
concerned about opening him up and finding nothing. Although would have felt
worse waiting since prognosis really gets substantially worse with each passing
day of waiting. Lessons learned, young mid to large breed dogs over represented,
be patient do a proper work up give medical management a chance but if you do
need to do surgery: cut early don't wait !!! Hope Finn has a rapid recovery!!!
