K Lakshmi, K Padmaja, P Nagaraj, A Gopala Reddy and M Gnana Prakash
A total of 140 dogs were diagnosed with hepatobiliary disorders based on clinico, hemato-biochemical and diagnostic imaging. Out of which, 32 dogs were diagnosed with diffuse parenchymal disorders with ascites, 32 dogs with diffuse parenchymal disorders without ascites, 24 with focal parenchymal disorders and 52 with biliary tract disorders. Transparent and clear ascitic fluid with mean values of specific gravity, total protein, albumin, nucleated cells and SAAG were 1.02 ± 0.01, 1.78 ± 0.04 g/dl, 0.87 ± 0.02 g/dl, 382 ± 34.23 x 10 9 /L and 1.17 ± 0.10g/dl, respectively along with few mesothelial cells and degenerated neutrophils were observed on ascitic fluid analysis.
