Abstract

Congenital lobar emphysema is a rare condition in dogs. A 3 month old pug presented with acute dyspnoea and radiographic findings diagnosed congenital lobar emphysema. Due to the patients rapidly deteriorating ventilation, an emergency right middle lung lobectomy was performed and recovery was uneventful. This case report describes the importance of making a prompt and accurate diagnosis of this condition, based on radiographic findings, to facilitate immediate treatment
