Hi, my name is Dale E. and I am a 7 year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever. A few days ago, I wasn’t feeling like my normal self, so my Mommy brought me to our friends at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital. They looked me all over and gave me some injections to make my stomach feel better. They even put an IV catheter in my leg and gave me some fluids because I was dehydrated. After that, I still wasn’t feeling better, so they had me drink a white liquid called ‘barium’ and then took a lot of x-rays of my belly. They wanted to see if the barium (which shows up on x-rays) got stuck anywhere in my insides. Sure enough, after a few hours, the barium hadn’t moved much at all, and the doctors told my Mommy that I most likely ate something that became stuck in my intestines.
