Document Type



A seven-year-old spayed female miniature schnauzer was presented with a history of three months of vomiting and weight loss. Vomition was reponed as usually occurring about one hour after eating. The vomitus was rapidly expelled and consisted of yellow liquid and panly digested food. The dog's weight had fallen from twenty pounds to sixteen pounds over this period. Physical examination revealed a tense, sensitive abdomen and slight enlargement of peripheral lymph nodes.
