All wired up!

Bonnie came to Yarra Ranges Animal Hospital after visiting her regular vet and being diagnosed with a foreign body in her oesophagus. Bonnie was admitted to hospital where we took a radiograph to confirm the object was still stuck in her oesophagus.

Oesophageal foreign bodies can be quite tricky to remove. Bonnie underwent a general anesthetic and the vet team were able to successfully remove a piece of chicken wire by using an endoscope. Luckily for Bonnie, the chicken wire had not caused any ulceration to her oeseophagus and with some medication she made a great recovery!
