Urinary Disease

Overview:

Urinary diseases that we diagnose and treat include recurrent UTI, urinary incontinence, bladder stones, proteinuria, kidney infections, acute and chronic kidney disease, and renal failure.

Diagnostics

During your appointment, we will review your pet’s medical history and perform a thorough physical exam.  Following a discussion of the medical history and exam findings, a combination of diagnostics will be recommended and may include:

  • Blood and urine analysis
  • Imaging – Abdominal ultrasound, voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG), CT of the abdomen
  • Ultrasound guided aspiration for microscopic evaluation
  • Endoscopic evaluation of the urinary tract (cystoscopy)
  • Histopathologic evaluation of samples collected from the urinary tract via endoscopy
  • Kidney function test

Treatment:

A comprehensive and individualized treatment plan will be developed for your pet based on your pet’s medical history and the results of the tests performed during this visit. Treatment recommendations may include oral medications, fluid administration, cystoscopic retrieval of bladder stones, and/or dietary modifications.

Aftercare:

A plan for follow up rechecks and treatments will be determined based on the diagnosis and treatment plan elected during your pet’s visit. We will collaborate with your primary veterinarian to design the best plan for your pet, which may include follow up rechecks with our team or your primary veterinarian.
