The normal venographic appearance of the pelvic limb of the dog was determined by using a technique adapted from that used in man. A water soluble iodine contrast medium (1.5 ml/kg) was infused slowly through a catheter placed in one of the dorsal interdigital veins. For three minutes before, and during the infusion, the dog was maintained at 60 degrees to the horizontal and radiographs were taken at the end of the infusion. The technique produced good images of the venous system in the pelvic limb.
