A nine-year-old, male cocker-spaniel dog was presented with the history of anorexia, vomiting, dullness, behavioural changes and not passing faeces since last four days. Haematological examination showed normal haemogram with neutrophilic leucocytosis. Biochemically, an altered plasma sodium, chloride, lactate, lactate dehydrogenase and alkaline phosphatase concentration were observed. The radiographic examination of abdomen in lateral and ventro-dorsal positions revealed a round radiopaque opacity of size 1.9X1.3 cm in the region of small intestines on the left side. Aseptic laparotomy was done to remove the foreign body. The dog recovered without any post-operative complication.
