Abstract

On May 2, 1958 a 5-year old, male English Bulldog was admitted to the Stange Memorial Clinic. The patient was very depressed and dehydrated. The pertinent history included complete anorexia, lethargy and difficult urination with dribbling. Physical examination revealed a large, fluctuating structure in the anterior ventral abdomen. Catheterization yielded approximately one pint of urine, and the abdomnal mass diminished in size accordingly. An attempt to palpate the prostate per rectum was unsuccessful. The heart rate was 180 per minute, and the patient's temperature was 105.6. A tentative diagnosis of urethral blockage with distention of the bladder and accompanying cystitis was made.
