Abstract:

Objective: A male Spitz about 7 years was presented to Veterinary College and Research Institute hospital with severe respiratory distress and anorexia for 3 days, which was successfully managed with thoraccocentesis. Case summary: Clinical examination revealed paradoxic respiration, dyspnoea, oral breathing and abducted elbows. Thoracic radiography revealed pulmonary infiltration with unclear cardiac silhouette. Electrocardiogram and echocardiography revealed arrhythmia and pleural effusion with dilated cardiac myopathy respectively. Thoracocentesis was done to relieve respiratory distress. Cytology of pleural fluid revealed mesothelioma. Animal was treated with enalapril, furosemide, prednisolone and pantaprazole. Animal showed significant clinical improvement following treatment. Unique information: Thoraccocentesis is the lifesaving emergency procedure which should be done in cases having paradoxic respiration.
