Abstract:
A male buffalo calf aged about 3 months was presented to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, International Institute of Veterinary Education and Research (IIVER), Rohtak, Haryana with a history of anuria, anorexia, sunken eyes, bilaterally distended tensed abdomen increased pulse, tachypnoea and tachycardia. In the present study, tube cystotomy technique was employed using Foley’s catheter for surgical correction of urolithiasis. Foley’s catheter (No.14) was passed through a subcutaneous tunnel parallel to the penis upto the level of Preputial orifice and brought upto the site of incision. Catheter was placed in the position using purse string sutures allowing the free flow of urine. Post-operatively, the calf remained healthy with substantial reduction in the size of the distended abdomen. By 2 weeks, Foley’s catheter was removed by pulling after deflating its balloon when the free flow of urine was established. The animal was treated post-operatively with anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics along with urinary acidifier.
