Blockage of the esophagus

Most often found in kittens, which during the game can swallow plastic or rubber toys or their pieces. In adult cats, blockage of the esophagus is extremely rare, usually due to excessively greedy eating of food.

Symptoms: the first signs of an esophageal blockage are restless behavior, the cat twists its head, twitches, scratches its mouth, coughs, burping and vomiting may occur. Sometimes in this case, local swelling or a painful spot can be found in the cervical part of the esophagus.

First aid. In the event that qualified veterinary care cannot be obtained right away, pour 1-2 teaspoons of petroleum jelly or vegetable oil into the throat of the cat, and then try to remove it if the foreign body is close to the mouth. Try vomiting with salt. To eliminate spasm of the esophagus, it is recommended to introduce 1/4 ampoule of atropine. Contact your veterinarian.

Blockage of the esophagus

  1. Barrett's esophagus, adenocarcinoma of the esophagus
    There is no reliable data on the incidence of adenocarcinoma with Barrett's esophagus, but it is proved that the risk of the disease increases in this case by 20-40 times. Presumably, the mechanisms of carcinogenesis are similar to those in colon cancer - chronic damage to the epithelium and cell proliferation lead to genetic rearrangements and, ultimately, to the neoplastic process.
  2. Blockage of the milk ducts
    Sometimes the milk ducts that connect the milk-producing cells to the nipples become clogged, leading to the appearance of painful seals behind the paralosal circles. In this case, wedge-shaped areas of redness may also appear, stretched from the seals back to the chest wall. Unlike mastitis, in case of obstruction of the milk ducts, the pain comes and goes, and if the ducts are not infected,
  3. Help with obstruction of the tracheostomy
    Purpose: Prevention of death from strangulation caused by clogging of the tracheostomy tube with thick discharge (purulent crusts, thick secretion). Equipment: sterile catheter, furatsillin solution 1: 5000, rubber balloon or electric suction pump, sterile pipettes, rubber gloves, container with a disinfectant solution, medicines, probe, cotton wool. Algorithm of action Calming the patient,
  4. Goiter blockage, inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract
    These diseases are most often found in chickens when feeding improperly prepared feed mixtures containing films of such crops as barley and oats, as well as when feeding poorly chopped and coarsened grass. With a complete blockage of the goiter, its bloating is possible, which leads to overstretching of its walls and to paralysis of the goiter muscles. The bird loses its appetite, it appears
  5. Obstruction of the auditory tube. H-68.0
    {foto74} Treatment outcome: Clinical criteria for improving the patient's condition: 1. Normalization of temperature. 2. Normalization of laboratory parameters. 3. Improving the clinical symptoms of the disease (lowering
  6. Inflammation and blockage of the auditory tube. H-68.
    {foto73} Treatment outcome: Clinical criteria for improving the patient's condition: 1. Normalization of temperature. 2. Normalization of laboratory parameters. 3. Improving the clinical symptoms of the disease (pain, lowering
  7. You mentioned obstruction of the milk ducts, mastitis and suppuration. How common are these diseases and how to treat them?
    It is not necessary that these diseases be common. After all, they are the result of engorgement of the mammary glands, infrequent breastfeeding or improper attachment of the baby to the breast. They become rare if the “Ten Steps” take place. All of them require immediate assistance. A blocked milk duct looks like a soft red lump. It can happen if one
  8. Weakness of the liver, blockages in it and everything associated with pain in the liver
    Weakness of the liver Says Galen: "The liver is a person whose liver acts weak in the absence of an external cause - a tumor or abscess." In fact, liver weakness accompanies liver disease and [comes] either from a disorder of simple nature without matter, or from a [disorder] with matter. The source of the [disorder] is either the liver itself or others
  9. Esophagus dissection (esophagotomy)
    Indications. Blockage of the esophagus by foreign bodies. Fixation. The animal is fixed in a supine position on the right side. Opposite the place of occurrence of the foreign body, a roller is placed at the bottom of the neck, as a result of which the foreign body more clearly contours, which somewhat facilitates the operation. Anesthesia. Infiltration anesthesia along the incision line. Anxious animals are injected
  10. Esophageal stricture
    - narrowing of the esophagus associated with congenital or acquired factors Classification of cicatricial narrowing of the esophagus (G. L. Ratner, VI Belokonev, 1982) By etiology: burns with acids, alkalis, other burns By the time of obstruction: early (3-4 weeks), late (later than 1 month) According to the development mechanism and clinical manifestations: A. Functional obstruction of the esophagus 1.
  11. Esophageal diseases
    General reasoning The esophagus sometimes has various disorders of nature, weakening its [ability] to perform its action, that is, swallowing. All sorts of diseases of the instrument and diseases of complicity occur in it, in which tumors are formed hot, cold and hard, from diseases of the instrument blockages most often occur in it; [they occur] either due to outside pressure,
  12. Esophageal diseases
    1. What symptom is most often observed in diseases of the esophagus? Regurgitation. 2. What is the difference between regurgitation and reflux? Regurgitation is the passive, retrograde movement of swallowed food to the upper sphincter of the esophagus; as a rule, food does not have time to get into the stomach. Most often, regurgitation occurs as a result of a violation of the motility of the esophagus, esophageal obstruction or asynchronous
  13. Esophagus DIVERTICULES
    - blindly ending process or protrusion of the organ. LINKER DIVERTICULES - localized along the back wall of the pharynx and esophagus. Classification of diverticulums of the esophagus, diverticulitis (according to Yusbasic, 1961) By localization: 1. Pharyngo-esophagic (Tsenker), 2. Bifurcation. 3. Epiphrenal. Largest diverticulum: Stage I - protrusion of the mucous membrane of the esophagus
