An 1-year-old intact male Jindo dog weighing 20 kg was referred with 7-day history of vomiting, anorexia, and lethargy. The dog was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) based on clinical signs, urinalysis, serum biochemistry, radiology and abdominal ultrasonography. Ten days of conservative therapy was given, but there were no signs of improvement. The patient was euthanized and necropsy was conducted. Renal histopathology was consistent with juvenile nephropathy and this is the first report of juvenile nephropathy in a Jindo dog.
