Two dogs with pancreatic pseudocyst or pancreatic abscess formation were treated by transgastric cystogastrostomy. In each case drainage of the cyst/abscess cavity into the stomach was followed by resolution of the primary lesion. One dog succumbed to an E coli bronchopneumonia after infection of the deep venous line used for total parenteral nutrition. The second dog recovered despite requiring additional surgery for biliary obstruction. Both dogs required intensive care during and after the operation.
