Pheochromocytomas are uncommon tumors arising from the adrenal gland, which have potential for aggressive local spread. The diagnosis is extremely challenging, particularly when classical endocrine signs are absent. This paper presents two canine cases of pheochromocytoma in the vertebral canal and illustrates the potential for detection of the tumor by abdominal ultrasonography.
