CASE STUDY OF THE MONTH
History: Fluffy is a 10 year old female spayed bichon that presented to the Lena Veterinary Clinic for a week long history of frequent urination, leaking urine and hematuria (blood in the urine). She is healthy otherwise and has no history of any serious health concerns.
Presentation: Fluffy was alert, responsive and in very good body condition when she walked into the clinic. Her physical exam was normal except for mild dental calculus, and on abdominal palpation a hard, smooth object was noted in the caudal abdomen.
Diagnostics: A urinalysis (urine test) and radiographs (x-rays) were done on Fluffy. The urinalysis showed a high (alkaloid) urine pH along with increased protein, blood and WBC’s found.
Abdominal radiographs showed a large, oval shaped object in the abdomen in the area in which the bladder is located. This object is consistent with the properties of a urolith (stone).
