Abstract:

Routine urine examination revealed yellow, turbid and alkaline urine. High numbers of epithelial cells, pus cells and RBCs. along with Calcium oxalate and Triple phosphate crystals were seen. On per-rectal palpation, two large uroliths of different size were felt in the urinary tract. On per vaginal examination urethra was highly dilated with one of the stones lodged marginally in it. This final investigation revealed urolithiasis leading to urinary tract inflammation. Stones were removed by transurethral manipulation after proper lubrication under epidural anesthesia. Mare recovered completely after treatment with antibiotic along with supportive therapy and urinary acidifier.
