The objective of this study was to identify disorders at the level of the thoracic wall as a determining factor in modified respiratory function in dogs and cats. A number of 130 cases (79 dogs and 51 cats) with respiratory diseases and showed changes in the thoracic wall were examined. The cases were examined by clinical and paraclinical methods in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine from Bucharest and Perugia clinics. At the thoracic wall bone tissue were recorded: 15 cases (13 dogs and 2 cats) with changes in the spine, 5 cases (3 dogs and 2 cats) with changes in the sternum and 12 cases (7 dogs and 5 cats) with changes at the ribs level. The soft tissues of the thoracic wall were affected by neoplastic processes in 26 cases (21 dogs and 5 cats) and post-traumatic injuries in 46 cases (24 dogs and 22 cats). Additionally, 26 cases (11 dogs and 15 cats) were identified with diaphragmatic disorders. The assessment found that post-traumatic injuries had the highest prevalence and the imaging examination allowed the localization of lesions.
