ABSTRACT

An intact female dog was examined for urinary incontinence. A right-sided ectopic ureterocele with bilateral hydroureter and pyelectasis was diagnosed via ultrasonography, with concurrent complicated urinary tract infection. Following a course of antibiotics, cystoscopic-guided laser ablation was performed, and the dog remained continent at 3 mo follow-up. Cystoscopic-guided laser ablation provides a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery and is the treatment of choice in humans, and this case report demonstrates it is feasible in canine patients.
