To describe the clinical course of a dog with a pheochromocytoma multisystem crisis that exhibited autoresuscitation after cardiac arrest.

Abdominal imaging was suggestive of a pheochromocytoma, and clinical pathology data and thoracic imaging suggested the presence of a multisystem crisis. The dog developed cardiopulmonary arrest that was followed by autoresuscitation.
