Pyloric Stenosis

General information on Pyloric Stenosis

Pyloric stenosis is a condition in which there is partial or complete obstruction of the gastric outlet in the dogís stomach. The obstruction of the gastric outlet is caused by a thickening of the muscles of the gastric outlet through a series of constrictions or spasms. The exact cause of pyloric stenosis is unknown. The symptoms of pyloric stenosis typically begin when the dog, as a puppy, is weaned from their motherís milk to solid food. The main symptom of pyloric stenosis is vomiting within a few hours after eating. Small breed dogs are more likely to develop pyloric stenosis than larger breed dogs.
