Intestinal volvulus in a 4-year-old dog. Upon opening
of the peritoneal cavity, the intestinal loops appeared dilated and haemorrhagic.
The arrow (image on the right) indicates the point of torsion of the intestine
around its mesenteric axis. The walls, as well as the content, of the
intestine were intensely haemorrhagic.
