Congenital lobar emphysema was found in a three-month-old male springer spaniel. Clinical signs included coughing, progressive dyspnoea and abnormal lung auscultation. Radiographic examination revealed overinflation and hyperlucency of the right middle lung lobe. Following lung lobectomy, clinical signs resolved and the animal had normal exercise tolerance. Previous case reports are reviewed and discussed in relation to human congenital lobar emphysema.
