Abstract

Objective: To describe the clinical course and successful management of a dog with crush syndrome, rhabdomyolysis, myoglobinuria, and associated acute kidney injury (AKI). Case Summary: An 8-year-old female, neutered, mixed-breed dog was referred to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital due to crush injury and suspected AKI. Blood tests and urinalysis showed markedly increased serum creatine kinase activity, myoglobinuria, and AKI. The dog was managed successfully with intermittent hemodialysis, and completely recovered. New or Unique Information Provided: This is the first report of a dog with crush syndrome with secondary myoglobinuria and AKI.
