Abstract

Canine ascites is an infrequently seen clinical sign which is often the primary complaint for presentation of an animal to a veterinarian. As in all cases a good history is a priority as further questions may reveal behavioral changes, vomiting, anorexia, and other clinical signs which may be important in defining the primary problem. Ascites itself can physically interfer with respiration, cause general discomfort, and disturb fluid and electrolyte metabolism.
