S Kokila, M Bharathidasan and S Dharmaceelan

A four year old male German shepherd weighing around 30kg was presented with the history of anuria for the past two days and dribbling urine for the past six months. Clinical examination of animal revealed congested mucous membrane, restlessness, ptyalism, distended painful abdomen, severely dehydrated and cryptorchid. Survey radiography revealed numerous cystic and urethral calculi. Attempt of lithohydropropulsion under Xylazine sedation was unsuccessful. Under general anaesthesia a mid ventral ceiliotomy performed. Exploration of abdominal cavity revealed uroabdomen, cystorrhexis. Calculi from the bladder was removed. Prescrotal urethrotomy was performed and caliculi removed from the penile urethra. The retained testicle in the abdomen was identified and removed. The testicle in the scrotal sac was removed by prescrotal method.
