Urethral Obstruction

Emergency!  If your pet is unable to urinate, he/she may have a urethral obstruction.  This occurs when stones or an accumulation of crystals block the tube through which urine is excreted.  The result is a very full, painful bladder requiring emergency surgery.  This is Amanda’s bladder prior to surgery last night.  Dr. Keller removed over twenty stones during surgery.  Today, she is feeling well and urinating on her own!Image
