The immunological examinations of two cases of pemphigus vulgaris and four cases of bullous pemphigoid in the dog are reported. Deposits of immunoglobulin and complement were identified betweeen epithelial cells of the pemphigus cases and at the epithelial/connectivce tissue junction in the pemphigoid dogs. The bullous autoimmune diseases must be considered in the differential diagnosis of mucosal and skin ulceration in the dog.
