    was made and the dog had a good initial response to treatment with mexiletine and later sotalol. Fifteen weeks later the dog developed respiratory difficulty, and a diffuse, nodular, interstitial lung pattern was evident throughout the lung fields on thoracic radiographs, and the owners elected to have the dog euthanased. On postmortem examination, a diagnosis of disseminated histiocytic sarcomasarcomaSubject Category: Diseases, Disorders, and Symptoms
