Cholelithiasis and choledolithiasis were diagnosed with serum chemistry, abdominal radiography and ultrasonography in a 2.0 kg, 10 year-old Yorkshire Terrier dog showing signs of anorexia, vomiting, iceterus and depression. In serum chemistry, the level of alanine transferase, alkaline phosphatase, aspartate transferase, total bilitrubin and direct bilirubin were elevated. On abdominal radiographs, focal lesions with increased radiopacity were seen in the hepatic region and the size of liver was increased. In ultrasonographic examination, it were seen that distension of gall bladder, hypercehoic change of liver, obstruction of cystic duct by calcult and calculi in the gall bladder. Cholecystectomy was undertaken and there were no complications after the operation.
