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 obstruction of the esophagus are restless behavior, the cat turns its head, twitches, scratches its mouth, coughs, belching and retching can be observed. Sometimes at the same time in the cervical part of the esophagus can detect local swelling or painful place.

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

  1. Barrett's esophagus, esophagus adenocarcinoma
    There is no reliable data on the incidence of adenocarcinoma in Barrett's esophagus, but it has been proven that the risk of the disease increases in this case by 20-40 times. Presumably, the mechanisms of carcinogenesis are similar to those in bowel cancer - chronic damage to the epithelium and cell proliferation lead to genetic alterations and, ultimately, to the neoplastic process.
  2. Dairy duct blockage
    Sometimes the milk ducts, which bind the milk-producing cells to the nipples, become blocked, resulting in painful seals behind the circles. In addition, wedge-shaped areas of redness may also appear, stretched from the seals back to the chest wall. Unlike mastitis, in case of a blocked duct, the pain comes and goes, and if the ducts are not infected,
  3. Assistance with tracheostomy blockage
    Objective: to prevent death from suffocation caused by blockage of the tracheostomy tube with thick discharge (purulent crusts, thick secret). Equipment: sterile catheter, furatsillin solution 1: 5000, rubber balloon or electric suction, sterile pipettes, rubber gloves, container with disinfectant solution, drugs, probe, cotton wool. Algorithm action Soothe the patient,
  4. Goiter obstruction, inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract
    These diseases are most common 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 coarse grass. When a goiter is completely blocked, its swelling is also possible, which leads to overstretching of its walls and paralysis of the goiter muscles. The bird loses its appetite, it appears
  5. The occlusion of the auditory tube. H-68.0
    {foto74} Outcome of treatment: 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, decrease
  7. You mentioned the blockage 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 child to the breast. They become rare if “Ten steps” are carried out. They all require immediate assistance. A blocked milk duct looks like a soft red lump. This can happen if one
  8. Liver weakness, blockage in it and everything related to liver pain
    Liver weakness Says Galen: "The liver is a person whose actions in the liver show weakness in the absence of an external cause — a tumor or an abscess." In fact, liver weakness accompanies liver disease and [occurs] either from a disorder of simple nature without matter, or from [disorder] with matter. The source of the [disorder] is either the liver itself or others.
  9. Esophageal dissection (esophagotomy)
    Indications. Blockage of the esophagus with foreign bodies. Fixation. The animal is fixed in a lying position on the right side. Opposite the place of occurrence of a foreign body underneath the neck, they enclose a roller, as a result of which the foreign body contours more clearly, which somewhat facilitates the operation. Anesthesia. Infiltration anesthesia along the incision line. Restless animals are injected
  10. Esophageal stricture
    - narrowing of the esophagus associated with congenital or acquired factors Classification of cicatricial narrowings of the esophagus (H. L. Ratner, V. And Belokonev, 1982). By etiology: burns with acids, alkalis, other burns. According to the time of obstruction: late (after 1 month) According to the mechanism of development and clinical manifestations: A. Functional obstruction of the esophagus 1.
  11. Diseases of the esophagus
    General reasoning The esophagus sometimes has various disorders of nature, weakening its [ability] to perform its action, that is, swallowing. Any diseases of the instrument and diseases of complicity, in which hot, cold and hard tumors are formed, occur in it, and because of the diseases of the instrument most often there are blockages in it; [they occur] either due to external pressure,
  12. Diseases of the esophagus
    1. What symptom is most often observed in diseases of the esophagus? Regurgitation. 2. How does regurgitation differ from reflux? Regurgitation is a passive, retrograde movement of swallowed food to the upper esophageal sphincter; as a rule, food does not have time to get into the stomach. Most often, regurgitation results from esophageal peristalsis, esophageal obstruction or asynchronous
    - blindly ending process or protrusion of an organ. LINKER DIVERTICULES - localized on the back of the pharynx and esophagus. Classification of esophagus diverticulums, diverticulitis (according to Yusbasic, 1961). By localization: 1. Faringo-esophagal (Tsenker), 2. Bifurcation. 3. Epiphrenal. Largest diverticulum: Stage I - protrusion of the esophageal mucosa
