    Abstract

    Acute intrinsic renal failure was diagnosed in a two‐year‐old, male, German shepherd dog following a Vipera aspis bite. Clinical signs included depression, hypersalivation, vomiting, tachypnoea, abdominal pain, splenomegaly, oliguria with haematuria and haemolysed serum. Leucocytosis with a shift to the left, thrombocytopenia, prolonged coagulation times (activated partial thromboplastin time, prothrombin time and thrombin time), hypofibrinogenaemia, azotaemia and hyposthenuria were the most prominent laboratory abnormalities. Histopathological evaluation of the kidneys showed a discrete glomerular hypercellularity, mesangial lysis and renal tubules filled with many hyaline casts and some necrotic cells.
