Esophagostomy Tube Placement

Views: 20741 - Comments: 5

Nathan Bodnar, DVM, walks you through placing an esophagostomy tube in a cat. Esophagostomy tubes are a simple way to introduce nutrition to an anorexic animal or one recovering from oral trauma/surgery. NOTE: This cat is immediately post-op PPDH correction surgery, the staff is aware of the pneumothorax present and it was addressed.
