Resumo


A five-year old cross breed bitch was presented at the Veterinary Hospital ?Governador Laudo Natel with vaginal discharge, dilated abdomen, vomiting and diarrhea. Anamneses revealed that the animal has been submitted to an ovariohysterectomy six months earlier, and to another surgical procedures in order to solve complications from the first surgery. Complementary exams were performed and ultrasonography revealed marked enlargement of the left kidney and displacement to the caudal portion of the abdomen. At surgery, the left kidney and ureter were grossly dilated and an ureteronephrectomy was performed. The dog recovered uneventfully and a year later she was clinically normal and no abnormalities were detected through laboratorial evaluations. Once urological complications are unusual problems of ovariohysterectomy, this report describes a case of pyonephrosis as consequence of this routine surgery in a bitch.
