Broncho-oesophageal fistula in two dogs
Two clinical cases of broncho-oesophageal fistula in the dog are presented. While both cases illustrate the value of oesophagoscopy as a diagnostic tool, one case depicts the complications which may be associated with positive contrast oesophagography. These two cases support previous observations that broncho-oesophageal fistulae are frequently of foreign body aetiology and usually extend from the caudal oesophagus, via the pleural space, to the caudal or middle right lung lobes.
