Cecal inversion in a Bloodhound
Lovell, John C.
Pete, a 5 month old male intact Bloodhound dog, presented to the Cornell University Hospital for Animals' Community Practice, Triage, and Soft Tissue Surgery Services on 6/12/07 for evaluation of an approximately 18 hour history of vomiting, intermittent bloody diarrhea, lethargy, and anorexia. Abdominal radiographs, ultrasonography, exploratory celiotomy, and histopathology were all consistent with cecal inversion. Typhlectomy was performed and his peritonitis, electrolyte abnormalities, hypotension, and hypoproteinemia were treated with fluid therapy and antibiotics. Pete made a full post-operative recovery with no recurrence of his presenting clinical signs.
