This study was conducted to determine the normal serial ultarsonographic appearance of the postpartum uterine involution. Postpartum changes in uterine shape, architecture, echogenicity and diameter were monitored by ultrasonography in 10 Shih-tzu bitches. Serial ultrasonographic examination was done daily during the first week, at 3 days interval from 8 to 30 days, and weekly from 31 to 100 days postpartum.
