3104. Can the large urethral stones be removed via the bladder?

"Stones are large and inside the os penile urethra," I said to the senior vet. "Can they be flushed back into the bladder and removed via the bladder?"

A few hundred surgeries had been performed by the senior vet.
"Yes," he said confidently. "It can be done."

Urinary cathether + 20 ml syringe =
general anaesthesia
The syringe of water pushed the 2 stones into the bladder. They were removed.

Stones were about 5 mm x 5 mm and rough.
To be sent for analysis.

Shih Tzu is Ok and will go home on Day 3.
