Abstract

LORIGADOS, C.A.B. et al. Ectopic ureterocele in a dog: a case report. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2012, vol.64, n.5, pp. 1101-1108. ISSN 0102-0935.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-09352012000500003.

The clinical features, diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of a dog with an ectopic ureterocele and concomitant hydronephrosis/hydroureter were reported. After the information obtained in laboratory tests and imaging diagnosis, the animal was submitted to ureterocelectomy and neoureterostomy. The dog presented a favorable evolution after the therapy. Although infrequent, the ureterocele should be considered a differential diagnosis in young animals with history of urinary incontinence.

Keywords : dog; ureterocele; ureters; urinary incontinence.
