Bulldog Intestinal Obstruction

If your pet is having issues eating, or is vomiting, be careful he might have an intestinal obstruction and may need assistance as soon as possible.

The Story of Ralphie

Ralphie came to SCBR in Feb 2015 after several months of weight loss and vomiting, he was in critical condition, just skin and bones.

Dr. Kraemer discovered several foreign objects in his intestines, a hard circular piece of plastic the size of a pacifier and several pieces of wire that had penetrated his bowel and were sticking out.

Dr. Kraemer performed a resection and anastomosis, were part of the intestine was surgically removed because the segment of his small intestine was ischemic, necrotizing and starting to perforate.

Ralphie made a rapid recovery and was adopted to a new loving family…

In October, Ralphie’s adopting parents called SCBR again after a long bout of vomiting.

Ralphie’s xray showed that he swallowed a rubber gasket (from swimming goggles). The ring got stuck at his small and large intestine junction, and things were just about to go very bad (the wall of that segment was dying off).

Dr. Kraemer conducted an immediate surgery, the object was once again successfully removed.

Ralphie was released back to his family…

… Ralphie is recovering well at home.
