A 10-year-old, entire female Pyrenean shepherd dog was presented for acute onset of gastroenteritis. An abdominal ultrasound examination showed the presence of a suspected gall bladder mucocele.

The bilothorax responded well to medical treatment that comprised of thoracocentesis and oral steroids.
