A 1.5-year-old male Corgi dog was presented by his owner to our institute with a 4-day history of dysphagia and regurgitation. The dog underwent a physical examination followed by hematological tests, X-rays, and endoscopy. Creatine kinase contents were above the average level, referring to inflammation in the dog. We detected narrowing of the upper esophagus was detected after feeding barium meal. We also found a stricture on narrowing the esophagus's lumen. Surgical resection of the stricture was performed. After the operation, we gave the dog anti-inflammatory and anti-regurgitation drugs for five days. With excellent postoperative care, the dog was eventually cured. Based on the above findings, the dog was diagnosed with esophageal stricture secondary to esophagitis. We concluded that surgical resection is the proper way to treat severe esophageal stricture in adult dog for complete recovery, which was successfully achieved in this case.
