Case Description- Two female domestic short-hair cats
Clinical Findings- The cats with clinical signs of regurgitation, dysphagia and respiratory distress were presented. Symptomatic sliding hiatal hernia was diagnosed by radiography in these cats.
Treatment and Outcome- The hernias were corrected surgically by only left-sided fundic gastropexy in one, and by reduction of hiatal opening and gatropexy in the other. Both animals were asymptomatic on re-examination and follow-up studies two, six and twelve months post surgery.
Clinical Relevance- This study revealed radiography and gastropexy as good diagnostic and treatment techniques, respectively in sliding hiatal hernia in cats.
