A foreign body is the medical term for when an object, such as a ball, rock, clothing, is ingested by an animal and becomes lodged in the gastrointestinal tract of the stomach or intestines. In some cases, animals will pass foreign objects. In many others, surgery may be required to remove the objects, sometimes as an emergency to save the animals life.

Our veterinary practice surgical protocols for foreign body surgeries include our hospital standards of physical examination, blood profile, IV catheter and IV fluids, pre and post operative pain relief, anesthesia, Pre and post operative radiograph x-rays, surgical procedure, a bite not or e-collar, post-operative medical management in the hospital from 1-3 days, pain relief and antibiotics to go home and the post operative follow-up appointment for suture removal.
