Reply To: Assessing Bladder size with Ultrasound
This is so interesting.
I have looked at this again and spoken to neurology and surgical collegues. I do not think there is good literature to support a bladder size guide in dogs. We will assess patients on a very individual basis. I also think it is interesting to consider the method of supporting urination. Indwelling atheter vs expression vs intermittent catheterisation. I have popped an interesting papaer below.
I also saw a paraplegic dog this week with a sacral implant so that the owner could control exactly when the dog voided urine! How cool. I have posted a paper below.
Thank you again for starting this great discussion!
