An 18-month-old intact male Cocker Spaniel dog weighing 7.7 kg was referred with a 2-week history of severe regurgitation. Based on the screening examination and fluoroscopy, this patient was diagnosed as having esophageal dysmotility. Treatment with mosapride and feeding small amounts of canned food frequently in an elevated position resulted in a successful outcome. The severe regurgitation improved, and the esophageal transit time improved from 18 sec to 8 sec. This is the first case report describing the diagnosis and clinical management of esophageal dysmotility in a young dog in Korea.
