The occurrence of a tracheal foreign body in a three-month-old male Poodle referred to a Teaching Veterinary Hospital due to acute coughing, gagging and nausea is reported. A bronchoscopy under general anesthesia was performed in order to obtain a diagnose. During the bronchoscopy a foreign body (maize popcorn) was observed in the intrathoracic trachea. The surgeon attempted to remove it by endoscopy, but no success was achieved. Therefore, an open procedure was performed and the foreign body removed. The patient progressed satisfactorily after the thoracotomy.
