Abstract: Renal size is an important parameter to be considered for renal disease. The normal kidney size varies depending on the breed of dogs and body conformation so the study is required to estimate the breed wise findings. Thus, the use of ratio comparing renal length and aorta diameter was investigated in thirty mongrel dogs including nineteen females and eleven males with bodyweight ranged from ten kilograms to twenty seven kilograms. The micro convex curved array probe of 4.5-8 MHz was used. In this study, the length of both kidneys displayed significant positive with aorta diameter and bodyweight. However, no significant difference was observed between length of right and left kidney. The mean kidney length: Aorta diameter was found to be ranged from-7.23. In conclusion, the ratio of kidney length to aorta diameter can be considered as a useful parameter for assessing the length of kidneys in healthy dogs.
