Hi Scott,

Thank you and thanks to your imager friend, that’s good to know regarding treatment. I did consider gastric ulceration, however only one of the hyperechoic lesions had distal acoustic shadowing. I discussed the images with an imager specialist and they were suspicious of emphasematous gastritis, with focal haemorrhage or fibrosis less likely. There is an enlarged gastric lymphnode present as well, so lymphoma couldn’t be ruled out, however with the resolution of clinical signs on treatment for gastritis only I think this is less likely.
