Cystotomies in Dogs and Cats.
This course uses narrated slides and videos to show the participant to how successfully and thoroughly perform a cystotomy in dogs and cats for the purpose of removing uroliths. Urolith recurrence is a common problem in small animals and it is thought that many recur because uroliths (albeit small) are left behind at the time of the surgery.
