Coughing in a dog secondary to intrapulmonary migrating foreign body
Carver, Valerie H.
A German shorthaired pointer was presented with a one month history of coughing and a 10-day history of mild lethargy. Physical examination was unremarkable. Hematological abnormalities included normocytic, normochromic, nonregenerative anemia; hyperglobulinemia, hypoalbuminemia, and a stress leukogram. The dog was found to have ingested a wooden kabob stick. The stick was thought to have perforated through the wall of the stomach, liver, and diaphragm, and to have subsequently lodged within the pulmonary parenchyma. Surgical removal of the stick and surrounding lung tissue through thoracotomy and partial lung lobectomies resulted in full clinical recovery.
