Abstract

Three dogs were determined to have hepatic arteriovenous fistulas. This condition is similar to a portosystemic shunt; however, cure necessitates hepatic lobectomy instead of a venous ligature. Because of this, it is useful to differentiate these 2 conditions before surgery. Ultrasonography was found to be simple, sensitive, and specific in diagnosing hepatic arteriovenous fistulas and differentiating them from portosystemic shunts.
