Lung tissue changes have been identified on gross pathologicalobservation, i.e.: on average the lungs were changed in color and size. The lungs mainlychanged into pale or darker; in addition, the lungs tended to become bigger. Mean while,the septa alveoli of the lungs observed thicker and were infiltrated by inflammatory cells.This tissue changes indicated that canine distemper virus which infected domestic dog inBali caused inflammatory reaction in lung, which is known as interstitial pneumoniainterstitial.
