This case report describes an episode of acute dyspnoea after hunting in a Dachshund dog. Thoracic radiographs confirmed pulmonary oedema. Echocardiography, electrocardiography and cardiac markers were within normal limits. Based on the history, clinical signs and other diagnostic tests this case could have been neurogenic non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema-like syndrome as described in Swedish dogs also after hunting and probably the first case detected in Central Europe. The dog survived with intense oxygen, diuretic and bronchodilator therapy. The pathological mechanisms of neurogenic non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema are also discussed.
