Abstract


A 1,8 year-old, 13 kg intact male Boxer was referred for evaluation of a persistent right aortic arch with concurrent megaesophagus. Contrast radiography of the oesophagus revealed contrast material accumulating in the oesophagus at the thoracic inlet and cranial to the heart. An ultrasound was performed to rule out any heart pathology. Surgical correction of the vascular ring anomaly (VRA) was performed. Four weeks after surgery, the dog was eating soft dog food with no vomiting or regurgitation.
