Most Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium strains are capable of infecting multiple hosts. In this report, an abdominal cavity abscess associated with the Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium phage type DT2 is described in a dog. A dead male dog was admitted to the Department of Pathology at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Erciyes University for necropsy. Anorexia, weight loss and lethargy were the clinical symptoms that were reported by the owner of the dog. The diagnosis was made by histopathological and bacteriological examinations of the lungs, spleen, liver and heart. In addition, the content of the abdominal cavity mass was evaluated in bacteriological analysis. The serotyping, phage typing and antibiotic susceptibility of the isolated bacteria were performed at the Danish Institute for Food and Veterinary Research. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first study reporting an abscess associated with S. enterica serovar Typhimurium phage type DT2 in a dog.
