Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] Narrowing of the Esophagus

You know, if I didn't know better, I'd think it a food allergy. In humans, as in some animals, anafalactic shock due to allergic reactions can close off the esophagus, causing blue lips, as the esophagus is also an airway up to a point. I wonder if anyone else has had food allergy issues. I know cats and dogs do have them why not ferrets? Were there any different ingredients in the foods that are in the first ten ingred.? I'm curious to know also if there can be an allergy, since I'm fairly new (5year dookiemomma)

Misha is approximately 5-6 years old and has had excellent health.
Recently, coinciding with a new food added to the mix, he started
vomiting occasionally. He vomited clear/white foam, which sometimes
had small bits of chewed kibble in it.

Any suggestions? I am wondering about either allergies to the new
food, or a piece of food injuring his esophagus and causes
inflammation. Or if anyone has seen a tumor in this location. If
wanted, I can find out the location of the films from my vet as she
has posted online also in her forums.
