Urolitiasis in canine puppy: Case report
Keywords:Urolith ; Diagnosis; Dogs.
Urolithiasis are disorders of great importance in the routine of the pet clinic and occur due to the formation of crystals, which aggregate, forming solid concretions called uroliths. High concentrations of solutes, mainly minerals, are one of the main predisposing factors for the development of urolith. It can affect both sexes, but it is more frequent in males aged between six and eleven years. The present report aimed to describe the case of a canine puppy, diagnosed with urolithiasis. The animal showed signs of dysuria and anuria and in the clinical evaluation, bulging of the abdomen was observed. Through abdominal ultrasound examination, structures compatible with uroliths in the bladder and urethra were visualized, confirming the diagnosis. To remove the uroliths, the procedure performed was scrotal urethrostomy. As an auxiliary therapy, the use of a calculolytic diet was recommended. After a month of dietary treatment, a new urinalysis was performed, where no more crystals were observed, establishing a good prognosis for the patient.
