When O’riley, a three year old Flat-Coated Retriever, first suffered from severe vomiting and abdominal pain initial investigations were unrevealing. He would settle after a period of medication and return to normal for a few days but then the symptoms would again return. Blood samples, radiographs and ultrasonography would not identify the source of his trouble. Finally O’riley underwent endoscopy in which a fibre-optic tube is passed down into the stomach, under general anaesthesia, and beyond to take tissue samples and visualise the gastrointestinal lining. Inflammatory bowel disease was diagnosed and we are delighted to say that O’riley is responding well to treatment.
