Abstract:

A six year old male Dalmatian dog was presented with the history of not voiding urine and gradual distention of abdomen for three days. The dog showed fever and distended urinary bladder. Haematobiochemical findings were leukocytosis with neutrophilia and elevated BUN and creatinine. Radiography and ultrasonography showed distended urinary bladder with cystoliths. Cystocentesis followed by retrograde urohydropropulsion was performed and 350 ml of cloudy urine was collected by catheterization. The microscopic examination of urine revealed numerous urate and struvite crystals, granular casts, leukocytes, erythrocytes and bacterial rods and cocci. Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus spp. were isolated from urine culture. The animal was treated with enrofloxacin, allopurinol and oral haematinics for 15 days and showed uneventful recovery.
