This report concerns an investigation which was made upon the venae cavae posterior and the renal veins and arteries in 500 adult dogs. Although the scientific literature reveals that many surveys of this type have been made upon other species or mammals, namely, the cat, the rabbit, and man, no record of a similar study on the dog can be round. According to the literature, the vena cava posterior of the mammal may represent any one or several different types. Similarly, the renal veins end arteries can exhibit varying patterns. In this investigation, the types of venae cavae I and the definitive renal venous and arterial patterns were recorded and compared with the data of previous studies on the cat and man.
