Rare case of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) was observed in a 2-year and 9 month-old Miniature Dachshund which had been diagnosed as severe cardiac failure. Pulmonary artery from the right ventricle connected to dilated ductus arteriosus, and pulmonary artery-ductus arteriosus-descending aorta formed a continuous duct, which seemed to be the main route of bloodstream. Ascending aorta from the left ventricle was hypoplastic, and connected to the dilated ductus arteriosus. Glomerular mesangiolysis due to heart failure was also observed in the kidney.
