Familial renal amyloidosis was found in a four-year-old male Shar Pei dog. The dog had intermittent fever with signs of renal failure. Another sibling of this dog also showed subclinical signs of renal amyloidosis. Despite aggressive therapy with peritoneal dialysis, the dog died after 10 days of the first presentation. With special staining for amyloid, the renal amylodosis was confirmed.
