Abstract: The present study was carried out on twenty five apparently healthy adult mongrel dogs. The animals were 12 males and 13 females. Their age ranged from 9 months to 4 years and their weight from 9-31 kg. The animals were divided into five groups; each of five dogs. The groups were treated in the following manner according to the time of ligation of the left ureter into: 2, 7, 14 and 21 days for groups 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively in addition to the control group. The kidneys were evaluated radiographically according to the renal opacification, perisestance of opacification and renal dimensions in relation to L2. It was found that the renal opacification was the poorest in the animals in group 4. The perisestance of opacification increased with the increase the time of ligation.
