Atony of the Urinary Bladder in a St. Bernard
On Feb. 15, 1954, the cadaver of a 3-year-old female St. Bernard was admitted to Stange Memorial Clinic for diagnosis. There was a history of occasional straining and frequent scanty urination. The abdomen was greatly distended and before death the animal was quite depressed. The owner thought the animal was pregnant; however, there was no increase in mammary development. Since the animal was dead on arrival there was no clinical diagnosis made.
