Blocked Ureters in Dogs
Blocked Ureters When urinary stones block a tiny tube in the urinary track.
You know something is wrong because your dog is just not right. Sheís not eating as well as usual, isnít as active, and appears to be suffering from an overall discomfort or malaise. What could it be?
An x-ray or ultrasound reveals she has a stone, or calculus, in one of her ureters. A blocked ureter generally isnít as dire as a blocked uretha because each dog (like each person) has two, one coming from each kidney into the bladder, where urine is stored.
Here are ways to diagnose and treat the condition.
