3. ENDOSCOPIC ASSISTED RETRIEVAL OF SEWING NEEDLE IN A DOG by SANDEEP SAHARAN1, RAM NIWAS2, RIBU VARGHESE MATHEW2 AND VISHAL KHOKHAR2
Foreign body ingestion is a common complaint among the pet owners. This is because of their indiscriminate feeding habit and playful behaviour. A two-year-old male dog was brought to Veterinary Clinical Complex with the signs of retching, pawing at mouth, hypersalivation and restlessness having the history of ingestion of a sewing needle few hours before presentation. Radiographic examination revealed the presence of the foreign object in the pharyngeal region. Under general anaesthesia, endoscopic assisted retrieval of the sewing needle was performed.
