Three dogs were presented with signs of recurrence of coughing, dyspnea and difficulty of barking after endotracheal stent placement. On the basis of history taking, physical examination, laboratory tests and radiography, complications of endotracheal stent were suspected. Dog 1 had unfitted stent diameter (stent diameter is larger than tracheal diameter) and getting disentangled of proximal tracheal stent wire. Dog 2 was suspected a foreign body reaction. Dog 3 had the migration of stent caudally. Based on these cases, the veterinarian should accurately evaluate the indicated patients before endotracheal stent and has to select the appropriate stent (diameter, length and location) to prevent complications after endotracheal stent and concern the regular follow-ups to assure proper endotracheal stent placement.
