A Prospective Study of Dogs with Gallbladder Mucoceles


The focus of the study is to determine differences, if any, in the metabolism of dogs affected with gallbladder mucoceles (GBM). Serum and urine biomarkers of steroid hormone and lipid imbalance in dogs with and without GBMs will be examined.

Testing Requirements:

The enrolled dog will undergo an abdominal ultrasound examination and collection of blood and urine samples.


Financial Incentive:

The study will cover the cost of an abdominal ultrasound performed at the NCSU-VHC. Owners will be responsible for the cost of all other medical and surgical treatment that they consent to.
