In 3 dogs with gallbladder mucocele, rupture of gallbladder was diagnosed and treated. Althoughthe diagnosis of gallbladder is challenging due to non-specific clinical signs and physical examinationfindings, mucoceles are ultrasonographically characterized by the appearance of the stellate or finely striatedbile paterns and difer from biliary sludge by the absence of gravity dependent bile movement. In thiscase, gallbladder rupture caused by mucocele can be diagnosed based on not only above characteristicsbut secondary lesion such as ascites around gallbladder and swollen hyperechoic mesentery.
