Abdominal Colic as a Result of Intestinal Obstruction by Enteroliths in an 8 Years Old Stallion: A Case Report

G.E. Ochube, B.Y. Kaltungo and U.B. Abubakar    

Abstract: The correction of enterolithiaisis in this case report was carried out by manual traction as the“stone” was lodged proximal to the ileo-cecal junction. This is a rare “fit” as the condition is mostly managed only surgically. Under mild sedation and with proper restraint using a crutch in a standing position, rectal enema alongside massive lubrication using a rectal lubricant was employed to manipulate the stone until it was successfully removed. The stone weighed 0.75 kg and its measurement length and breadth were 7.5 and 4.5 inches, respectively. Mild bleeding that resulted was managed by applying digital pressure on the affected part of the rectum and intravenous administration of vitamin K injection at 5 mg kg–1 was given. Animal was placed on maize bran and other less fiber diet for 5 days to allow proper healing of the rectal area to take place. The animal recovered fully 14 days after correction.
