Two dogs were presented with the history of wild boar attack during hunting. Clinical and radiological examination revealed thoracic and thoracoabdominal pathologies. Perioperatively, hemothorax, ruptured right middle lung lobe and pericardium, right partial caudal lung lobe contusion and rib fractures were determined in case 1. Hemoabdomen, caudal liver lobe rupture, diaphragmatic hernia, hemothorax, right caudal and accessory lung lobe rupture and rib fracture were observed in case 2. Pathologies were treated with emergency operative approaches. Postoperative at the end of 1st and 6th month, owners informed that the dogs were healthy. It is expressed considering these cases that mortal traumas can be caused by wild boar attacks in dogs and these can be treated with correct emergency surgery approaches.
