#Urethral Stones! Yes its a thing! with Dr Dave Collins
Welcome back to another one of our clinical episodes. I decided to share this one today because of a case I dealt with just this morning. We had a cat in hospital with what was thought to be acute renal failure, but what turned out to be a ureteral obstruction. That’s ureTEral, not urethral. Seeing this case reminded me how dangerous this disease is, and how easily it can be missed. So I thought I’d share this episode that we recently did on the topic with our resident medicine specialist, Dr Dave Collins. The thing is – until we did this interview with Dave, ureteral obstructions just wasn’t on my radar, but we’re learning that it’s apparently more common than we think it is. Probably because we’ve been missing them.
If this comes as a surprise to you then I recommend you plug in and let Dave tell you everything you need to know about ureteral obstructions: from spotting them, to diagnosing them, and all the way to how to fix them.
