December 4, 1950, a 2-year~old female Beagle was admitted to Stange Memorial Clinic. A history of vomiting and not eating was given. The patient showed extreme depression, dehydration, conjunctivitis and a temperature of 99.2°F.

Fluroscopy revealed the presence of an opaque object of the - size mentioned previously. A diagnosis of a foreign body in the small intestine was made.
