Severe Dental Disease right before and after an
ultrasonic dental cleaning (prior to extractions).  
The severe root exposure was not completely seen
when the teeth are covered in tartar.
This is a uterus that is full of pus (pyometra).  This
female dog was not spayed when younger and
developed a life threatening infection in her
uterus.  The  treatment is to do a spay surgery,
but it is high risk and some dogs do not survive
this disease.  The risks are much lower to spay a
younger dog, preferably before she has a heat
cycle or puppies.  It can also happen in cats that
are not spayed.

Sarcoptes
This mite is the culprit behind
sarcoptic mange.  The view here is
through a microscope and the 2
round objects at 3 and 9 o'clock are
the mites.
This is an enlarged spleen
due to a malignant cancer.  It
is approximately 10 times
larger than the average spleen.

on the winning end.
