A diagnosis of ventricular septal defect (VSD) was made tentatively in a male rabbit 18 months of age of the Japanese White mixed breed weighing 1. 3 kg. It was based on the results of physical and hematological examinations, radiography, electrocardiography, and phonocardiography. Unfortunately, the animal died after suffering from a defect in left heart angiocardiography. Necropsy revealed that the animal had the membraneous type of VSD.
