Managing Urethral Obstruction in Dogs
This course uses narrated slides to show the participant to how successfully manage a dog with a urethral urolith. The course was created because it was noted that general practitioners would refer patients to me for a urethrotomy after unsuccessful attempts at retroplusion. Fortunately for most of these dogs, we were able to retropulse the urolith(s) and remove the stone(s) via a cystotomy. So why was I successful where they were not? What were we doing differently? After observing/listening to the various ‘unsuccessful techniques’; I was able to put together points that would help ensure a higher rate of success. The urethrotomy, urethrostomy and various types of urethral catheters are also discussed in this workshop.
