Featured Case – Ruptured Gall Bladder

Featured Case – Ruptured Gall Bladder

A 5 year old male neutered pomeranian presented with a history of several days of not eating, drinking water then vomiting bile,  and diarrhea. He was depressed, lethargic and had a very distended, painful abdomen. An x-ray was taken…

 The grey haze in the abdomen indicates that it is filled with fluid. An abdominocentesis was performed ( fluid  taken from the abdomen)….

 The yellow fluid indicated bile, and the diagnosis was a ruptured gall bladder. Unfortunately, bile in the abdominal cavity is detrimental to internal organs. The prognosis for this case was very poor, and euthanasia was elected in the best interest of the dog.
