Meet “Sasha” the 2yr old Chihuahua. She presented to our clinic with difficulty urinating. When she managed to urinate it was red in colour.
Dr Hannah Van Wunnik performed a blood test and urinalysis and then sent Sasha home with a course of antibiotics. Sasha appeared to be improving on the course of antibiotics until she started passing blood clots in her urine.
Sasha was then admitted for an abdominal ultrasound. Under sedation Sasha’s abdomen was assessed and to the amazement of the ultrasound specialist, they found Sasha was suffering from a large number of bladder stones.
This diagnosis lead to surgery. Dr Hannah Van Wunnik performed the delicate procedure to remove each bladder stone. X-rays were taken post surgery to ensure there were no more stones left in the bladder. Sasha spent a night recovering in hospital after surgery on intravenous fluids to encourage her to use her bladder before sending her home.
A stone sample was then sent for laboratory testing in Minnesota to provide details of the mineral makeup of the stone. This information would assist in the diet that Sasha would need to adopt. Sasha’s owners were then advised on how their pets diet would need to be changed to assist with prevention from reoccurring bladder stones.
We are happy to report that Sasha is recovering well and is enjoying her new diet change.
