Abstract:
A six year old male non-descriptive dog was presented to the small animal surgical unit of the Veterinary Clinical Complex, Veterinary College and Research Institute, Namakkal with a history of anuria and anorexia for the past three days. Examination of animal revealed abdominal distention, dehydration and depression. Radiography and Computed Tomographic examination revealed multiple radio-opaque calculi in urinary bladder and calculus in urethra. Retrograde catheterization failed to push the calculi into urinary bladder. Hemato-biochemical values were all normal except leukocytosis and elevated BUN and Creatinine levels. Under inj. Atropine @ 0.04 mg/kg body weight S/C, inj. Butorphanol @ 0.2 mg/kg body weight I/V and inj. dexmedetomidine @ 5 µg/kg body weight I/v premedication and Zoletil @ 2mg/kg body weight I/V as induction and isoflurane 2% as maintenance cystotomy was performed by mid-ventral approach. Multiple calculi from the bladder and by retro-hydro propulsion, calculus from the urethra were removed. Postoperatively, parenteral antibiotics and analgesia were followed for five days. On the day five of surgery, catheter was removed. The removal of skin suture was done after ten days post-surgery. The dog shown uneventful recovery without any complications.
