Abstract:
A total of 55 cases were selected with the different affections of lower urinary tract from year September-2017 to July-2019. The age and sex wise distribution of different disorders of lower urinary tract revealed the age of dogs ranged from one and half year to eighteen years. The age and sex wise distribution of different disorders of lower urinary tract revealed the age of dogs ranged from one and half year to eighteen years. Urolithiasis (52.73 %, n=29) was higher in 7 to 9 years aged dogs (18.18 %), in male dogs (38.18 Vs. 14.55 %). The dogs having non-urolithiasis conditions (n=26, 47.27 %), comprised percent cystitis (n=17), mass in bladder (n=8) (30.91 and 15.54, respectively) and a case of lodged catheter in bladder. The incidence of cystitis and mass in bladder were higher in the age of up to 3 (14.54 %) and 7 to 9 years (9.10 %), respectively. The male dogs were found to be suffering more from cystitis (25.45 %) and mass in bladder (36.36 %) than female dogs (5.45 % and 9.09%, each affection). Labrador and Pug dogs had higher urolithiasis and cystitis up to 14.54 and 7.23 %, each, respectively, whereas German Shepherd had a mass in bladder up to 5.45 %. The dogs given commercial food had higher (31.03 %) urolithiasis. The morbidity period of 24 to 48 hours was observed in dogs having urolithiasis (41.38 %) and cystitis (52.94 %) whereas for dogs having mass in the bladder (52.50 %) had the morbidity lasting for more than a week. The most pronounced clinical signs in dogs having urolithiasis and cystitis were distended bladder in 48.28 % (14) and 70.59 % (12), respectively, whereas haematuria in all cases of mass in bladder.
