Abstract
In this case series, the development and successful treatment of pulmonary edema are described in two obese animals (a horse and a dog) in the postoperative period. This rare but severe complication is normally fairly easy to diagnose, but the cause is usually multifactorial and difficult to determine. Potentially contributing factors are discussed. Both animals responded successfully to therapy and were discharged without further incidents.
