On Jan. 26, 1951, a 1-yearold male canine of the German Shepherd breed was presented at the Stange Memorial Clinic.. Accompanying history indicated that the animal had been drinking large quantities of water but had been refusing food. An enlargement of the abdominal cavity had first been noted two weeks previously.
