Case: Oesophageal fish hook removal with the aid of an endoscope

referral x rayunnamedKoda, a Northern Inuit male dog, decided to try eating a fishing hook – it dodn’t get far- just part way down the oesophagus.

We mananged to get it out with the help of a metal tube, and endoscope and a bit of patience! The oesphagus was checked afterwards with the scope to verify no bleeding or sginficant damage had occured.

No food for 24-48 hours while the redness goes out of the site, then food as normal!
