GB Mucocele: It's Not About The Kiwi!: Our Case Of The Month November 2014
GB Mucocele: Its Not About The Kiwi! Thanks to the diagnostic efficiency workflows of Rebekah Jakum ARDMS of Pennsylvania Mobile Ultrasound (www.pamobile.net), Phil Zeltzman DVM, DACVS (www.drphilzeltzman.com), & Rossmoyne Animal Emergency (raetc.com) & yours truly (http://sonopath.com/about/specialists/eric-lindquist-dmv) to get this case from sonogram to interpretation to surgical table within a couple of hours so the bile peritonitis bomb that went off in this dog could be addressed immediately. Diagnostic efficiency in a nutshell represented by this month's case of the month: Ruptured GB mucocele in Labrador with bland clinical profile.
12-year-old MN Labrador mixed breed was presented for evaluation of anorexia, vomiting, and lethargy. Abnormalities on CBC and serum biochemistry were severe leukocytosis,neutrophilia, hemococentration, and elevated ALP (600).
