  • A 12-year-old bitch, Yorkshire terrier, was admitted to the Chungbuk National University animal hospital with draining from mammary masses in the left and right mammary glands. She was involved in the mammary masses, suffering bilateral inguinal hernia. Physical examination during the hospitalization demonstrated the masses in right (3 cm) and left (1.5 cm) mammary glands. Blood pool images didn\`t show the subtle increase in blood flow to the inguinal hernia, and the increase of radionuclide distribution to the mammary gland on the soft tissue phase. However, delayed bone images showed a very focal lesion in the right mammary gland. These findings were confirmed on a subsequent biopsy, which also revealed adenocarcinoma with areas of malignant new bone formation. We present a case of primary mammary adenocarcinoma with $^{99m}Tc-MDP$ activity relative to normal bone. Tumor in the bitch demonstrates malignant new bone formation as the likely mechanism for the marked radiotracer avidity.

  • A 6-year old, Greyhound bitch was presented with vaginal hemorrhage and dystocia. Physical examination revealed severe vaginal hemorrhage, abdominal pain, pale mucous membranes and the presence of solid structures to abdominal palpation. A hematological test revealed a marked hemorrhagic anemia, and abdominal radiography and ultrasonographic examination showed two dead fetuses in the uterus. Median laparotomy revealed a rupture of the left uterine horn adjacent to the bifurcation, region of weakened uterine wall in the right uterine horn, blood clots and uterine fluids in abdominal cavity without septic peritonitis. The bitch underwent ovariohysterectomy and recovered without complication.

  • A 10-year-old spayed female Yorkshire Terrier visited for a physical checkup. The bitch had a history of ovariohysterectomy for treatment of pyometra a year ago. On physical examination, the dog was bright and alert. Complete blood counts, serum biochemistry and blood gas analysis results did not show any deviations within normal ranges. Radiographic and ultrasonographic examinations revealed unilateral hydronephrosis and hydroureter of the right kidney and ureter, and obstruction of the distal ureter was observed. On the basis of these results, nephroureterectomy was performed. During the operation, the adhesion of the distal ureter and surrounding tissue cells were observed without the evidence of the ureteral ligation. The distal ureteral obstruction was presumed to be adhesion caused by fibrous tissue formation between ureter and retained broad ligament, or incompletely removed blood clots following ovariohysterectomy. This case report describes the occurrence of hydroureteronephrosis caused by adhesion of the distal ureter following ovariohysterectomy in a bitch.

  • An 11-year-old poodle bitch was presented for investigation of multicentric mammary masses. Abdominal sonography and radiography demonstrated abnormal enlargement of uterus and ovaries. Blood analysis revealed high progesterone concentration. The ovariohysterectomy and mastectomy were performed. Histopathologically, the mammary masses revealed complex carcinoma-tubulopapillary carcinoma with papillary pattern and tubule pattern. In the uterus, cystic endometrial hyperplasia was observed. Scattered inflammatory cells were observed in the endometrial stroma and mucinous material was protruded from endometrial surface. Also, in the ovaries, bilateral ovary granulosa cell tumor was detected. The bitch made a complete recovery following the ovariohysterectomy and mastectomy. This case was a very rare multiple tumor occurrence with bilateral ovary granulosa cell tumor and mammary complex carcinoma. High progesterone concentration was characterized clinically in the bitch.

  • This report describes a case of postpartum uterine rupture associated with retained placenta and sequential acute metritis, not dystocia. A 14-month-old Bichon Frise bitch presented with continuous vaginal bleeding. She delivered five puppies 3 days ago and expelled four placentas on the next day. After then, anorexia, acute depression with continuous vaginal haemorrhage developed. Plain radiography showed decreased serosal detail, and ultrasonography showed irregularly thickened uterine wall and ascites. Blood-tinged peritoneal fluid was an exudate with bacteria. Ovariohysterectomy was curative for the patient, and four full-thickness perforated holes were identified on both sides of the uterine horns.

  • A six-year old bitch pregnant with prolonged gestation over about one month was ovariohysterectomied. The bitch was proved to be normal by physical and biochemical examination and had not a purulent vaginal discharge. A large firm mass was palpated in left caudoventral abdomen. Radiography identified the mass as a fetus. The abdominal ultrasono-graphy identified the fetus was dead. Caesarian section through the median raphe over linea alba was attempted. Adhensions were found between the uterus, stomach, spleen, urinary bladder, and abdominal viscera. Two fragments of bone were found in the abdominal cavity because of rupture of left uterine horn. Radiography and ultrasonography were proved to be of use to diagnose prolonged fetal mummification. Ovario-hysterectomy was considered to be choice of treatment to remove the prolonged mummified fetus.

  • A four-year old bitch which showed occasional hemomorragic exudate from the vulva for two weeks after the previous estrus 7 months ago was ovariohysterectomied. About 200m1 of sanguineous fluid was flowed out from the uterus and some scattered blood clots were found in both uterine horns. Hematometra of the bitch which was presumed to occur during the proestrus two weeks ago was thought to progress into early pyometra at the time of diagnosis. To diagnose hematometra, vaginal examination using vaginal speculum or vaginoscope and hematological examination were performed. Radiography and ultrasonography were also proved to be of use to diagnose hematometra. Treatment for hematometra was considered to be the same as for the case of pyometra.

  • This report describes a case of newly recognized congenital $M{\ddot{u}}llerian$ duct anomaly in a bitch. A fourteen-year-old, mixed breed bitch was presented with mild hematuria and mammary gland tumor. Complementary examinations were performed and abdominal ultrasonography revealed distended uterine horns and uterine tumor-like mass around the right ovarian area. Macroscopic examination showed the mass to be on the level of insertion of the right round ligament. The mass was cystic in nature, and had no communication with the uterine cavity. Histopathologically, the mass was identified as an accessory cavity lined by functional endometrium, which confirmed the diagnosis of accessory and cavitated uterine mass.

  • Pyometra is a diestrual, chronic disease process with acute manifestations in the adult, ovary-intact bitch. Serosal inclusion cysts develop during postpartum involution as mesothelium becomes trapped during rapid uterine contraction. A 10-year-old golden retriever bitch presented with lethargy, anorexia, tachypnea, abdominal distention, and abnormal vaginal discharge. Radiographic, ultrasound, and laboratory examinations were performed. On ultrasound examination, the uterus was distended by fluid containing echogenic "snow storm" particles; cystic structures containing anechoic fluid were found adjacent to the body of the uterus. Leukocytosis, neutrophilia, and anemia were diagnosed by a complete blood cell count. The initial diagnosis was pyometra, and an ovariohysterectomy was performed. Macroscopically, the uterine body and horns were expanded and partially adhered to the abdominal wall; numerous cysts containing clear fluid protruded over the entire surface of the uterus. Escherichia coli that was sensitive to enrofloxacin, was cultured from the lumen of the uterus. Histopathological assessment confirmed a final diagnosis of pyometra and serosal inclusion cysts of the uterus.

  • A bitch was presented for investigation of the mass in left 5th mammary gland. The partial mastectomy was performed and submitted for the histopathological diagnosis. The mammary mass was firm and white colored. The cut surface was separated with several lobules and developed vessels. The central area of the mass formed the cavity filled with inflammatory exudates. The dominant component of the tumor was the bundles of spindle-shaped cells. Some tumor cells possessed atypical nuclei and were arranged in a solid nest. Cysts were microscopically composed of hemorrhage, necrosis, and exudates, partially surrounded by tumor cells and granulation tissues. Histopathologically, the mammary mass revealed spindle cell carcinoma. The bitch made a complete recovery following the mastectomy. This case was a rare mammary spindle cell carcinoma in a dog.
