Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted to explore the prevalence of cholecystic disorders through ultrasonographic evaluation in 130 dogs of different age, sex and breed irrespective of their health status. Sludge, ultrasonographically characterized by echogenic bile or sediments within dependent part of gallbladder without acoustic shadowing was diagnosed in 54 (41.53%) dogs without any sex, breed and age predisposition. Mucocele, ultrasonographically characterized by stellate or striated gravity independent bile pattern and cholecystitis with uniformly thickened reflective gallbladder wall was diagnosed in four (3.07%) and three (2.30%) dogs, respectively.
