Patent ductus arteriosus in a golden retriever

Abstract
Patent ductus arteriosus is a commonly detected congenital cardiovascular disorder that leads death if not treated in the early stage. In this report, findings of a 11 months old golden retriever with patent ductus arteriosus are presented. Patent ductus arteriosus was diagnosed by physical examination, X ray,  electrocardiography, echocardiography and doppler echocardiography. It is aimed to emphasize that the golden retriever, one of the current popular breeds, could rarely have this genetic disorder and to add value to this report by being the first one in our country.
