K Jagan Mohan Reddy
Three dogs of which two female and one male dog with ages ranging from 5-12 years old were presented to the clinics with a history of urinary incontinence, haematuria, anorexia and dehydration. Clinically the dogs found to be dull, depressed and dehydrated. Palpation of abdomen revealed urinary bladder distention and the same was evident on lateral abdominal radiograph as radio-opaque cystic calculi Cystolithectomy was performed via caudal ventral midline laparotomy under general anesthesia and an indwelling catheter was fixed. The calculi measuring various sizes from approx. 4 to 25 mm. Cystolithoectomy should be performed over urethrotomy in male dogs, if stones can be flushed into the bladder pre-operatively or intraoperatively. The indwelling catheter was removed after 10 days and the three dogs recovered uneventfully.
