“Doc, it hurts when I breathe”
Tweet This Post
Officer Cynical goes out on a limb and says he thinks that one’s ribs on a given side should be approximately parallel to one another, and not cross or whatever the hell is going on on the right side there.
“Okay, so don’t breathe.”
Vet trying a guess – diaphragmatic hernia? Guts shouldn’t be that close to the heart…
Air under left diaphragm. Also, remarkably good inspiration effort I think (I am getting distracted by reflections on glass).
Hard to see… What is that funky foreign body superimposed with the lt axillary ribs? Looks like a little toy. No free air,a paucity of bowel gas, no hernia. Not sure, used to looking at them at least 14 x 17 inches in size.
Air under the right diaphragm. Perforated viscus until proven otherwise.
Free air under the right hemi-diaphragm. Perforated colon with any abdominal pain! Congrats to those that got it right.
