  • COMMENTS:
    • This cystic proliferative change to the lining of the gallbladder is a very common incidental finding in the dog. It does not appear to be related to the condition known as the gallbladder mucocele, a much more severe and life-threatening change in the gallbladder which may result in rupture and bile peritonitis.
