Time to play! : the answer
Thank you for your participation and the great comments on this case!
Dogs like to eat smelly skewers. Be careful around appetizers and BBQ time…
Dogs do not always develop significant clinical signs and the clinical history may play a useful role in guiding you!
In this dog, the skewers were partially anchored in the wall but did not perforate it yet.
Between endoscopy and surgery, surgery was chosen because of the gastric pneumatosis that confirmed partial wall penetration.
No perforation had occurred and the dog had an uneventful recovery.
Note: For the Premium members, If you want to see a complete gastric perforation with a stick, review the Time To Play #10.
