Subcutaneous emphysema was more severe on the left and a single metallic pellet lay in the soft tissue at the level of the 9th rib on the left. Fracture of the 7th rib on the right with a small metallic fragment adjacent to the fracture site suggested the shot had passed through the thorax. The diaphragm was intact. Pleural fluid was difficult to evaluate because of the cat’s obesity. Treatment/Management: The fracture plus identification of the single pellet indicated a gunshot wound resulting from a high-pressure airgun.

The lung lobes on the right and the cranial lobe on the left showed pulmonary contusion. Rib fractures were present on the left. A pneumoperitoneum was suspected.
