Abstract: The study on canine nephritis was carried out over a period of one year on sixty dogs (60) presented at the Small Animal Clinics, Madras Veterinary College, with clinical signs suggestive of renal insufficiency and 30 dogs with gross nephritis lesions submitted to the department of Veterinary Pathology. The mean age of affected animals was 7.8 ? 0.34 years. Sixty percent of the animals affected were males and 40 % were females. Aged dogs (mean - 7.8 ? 0.34 years) were more susceptible for nephritis. German shepherd (26.66 %) and Spitz (21.66 %) showed a higher incidence of nephritis. E.coli was the principal organism isolated from urine samples. In this study, out of 56 cases studied histopathologically, majority of the animals showed subacute and chronic type of nephritis. The increased incidence of subacute and chronic type of nephritis suggested that renal diseases were not diagnosed in the early stages because of the less sensitivity of routinely used screening tests like BUN and serum creatinine.
