Ureterohydronephrosis is characterised by progressive dilatation and urine accumulation inside the renal basinet and/or ureters. A number of 40 dogs were evaluated, from different breeds with different ages by physical, imagistic and laboratory (hematologic and biochemical) examination. The aim of this study was the evaluation of ultrasonographic aspects and blood changes in ureterohydronephrosis in dogs. Physical examination revealed abdominal distension (23/40), pain sensibility (31/40) and uremic syndrome signs (21/40), Laboratory investigations revealed hemoconcentration (18/40), hypochrome anemia (13/40) and leucocytosis (12/40). Ultrasonographic, different degrees of basinet and ureters dilatation were noticed accompanied by renal structural changes.
