In this report, a dog is described that was referred to the Small Animal Department, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (Ghent University) for further work-up and treatment of a solitary renal cyst. The cyst was treated successfully with ultrasound-guided drainage and percutaneous sclerotherapy. The dog was followed-up during twenty-four months post procedure with renal sonography. The complaints of intermittent lethargy disappeared after the first treatment. The ultrasonographic appearance of the cyst evolved from a round, anechoic, sharply demarcated lesion to an ill-defined, hyperechoic lesion.
