Abstract

Retrospective cross‐sectional study based on a referral population of dogs with diarrhoea. Associations between the clinical signs, use of abdominal ultrasonography, results of abdominal ultrasonography and subsequent work‐up were examined. The utility of abdominal ultrasonography was scored as high, moderate, none or counterproductive based on review of medical records.
