This is a 3 year old Australian Cattle Dog with an intermittent cough since being adopted. The coughing has recently become more frequent with production of foamy material/small amounts of blood. Have a look at the case and post your interpretations.
There is moderate right sided heart enlargement with a prominent pulmonary artery bulge visible on the DV projection. There is moderate pulmonary arterial enlargement with the right caudal pulmonary artery being grossly enlarged and blunted. A patchy interstitial to alveolar pattern is present throughout all lung fields, primarily peribronchial in distribution. It is worse in the right caudodorsal lung fields. Incidentally there is a metallic BB within the soft tissues of the right dorsal thorax.
