The present study was carried out on dogs presented to Veterinary Clinical Complex, Bhoiguda and Campus Veterinary hospital, College of Veterinary Science, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, Telangana during period from October 2020- February 2021. A total of 4,690 dogs, Out of which, 140 dogs were suspected for chronic kidney disease based on the history and were further screened; among the monly56 dogs were diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on the basis of history, observation of classical clinical manifestations, hematological alterations, biochemical profile, electrolyte profile, ultrasonographic findings, urinalysis. In dogs suffering with different stages of CKD, vomitions, inappetence, haematuria, weight loss, weakness, polyuria, polydipsia, pale mucous membrane, halitosis, hematemesis, edema and ascites were observed.
