Veterinarian Technician January 2008 (Vol 29, No 1)

Picture This! Treasure Hunt

    In November 2006, a 6-year-old neutered bull terrier presented with a history of pica and foreign body surgery. He had a 1-week history of anorexia, straining to defecate, and vomiting. Radiographs (right) revealed a foreign body in his stomach and distal jejunum. During surgery, this "treasure chest" (below), weighing 1.6 lb, was removed. The dog recovered well.
