In this study, ultrasonographic evaluations were made after experimentally induced ascites in dogs. Ultrasonographic evaluation allowed to identify the earliest fluid accumulation between the spleen and the left kidney after the administration of 0.9% normal saline at 8 ml/kg into the abdominal cavity in dogs. Ultrasonographic finding were observed in order between the spleen and the left kidney, the liver, the pelvic cavity. It is considered that the most adequate pare f3r the early detection of ascites is between the spleen and the left kidney, and the least amount of detection fluid is 8 ml/kg in dogs.
