Abstract

An esophageal impaction consisting of plant material was diagnosed and treated in an indigenous goose. An adult freeflying indigenous goose with flaccid neck muscles, lethargic, emaciated and mildly dehydrated was brought to TVH (Teaching Veterinary Hospital), Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Khulshi, Chittagong, Bangladesh. Palpation of neck revealed solid tubular mass ventrally in the mid cervical region. Treatment included oesophagotomy and drug therapy. The bird was fully recovered within 10 days of post operation.

Key words: Impaction, cervical region, oesophagotomy
