Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is rarely recognized in dogs mainly due to its asymptomatic course. This article reports a case of asymptomatic CIN in a dog, diagnosed by laboratory tests, to warn about the importance of detecting risk factors in patients undergoing radiological studies requiring iodinated contrast media, especially computed tomography, in order to reduce harmful potential of these substances.
