Transabdominal Ultrasonographic Examination of 26 Sheep with Suspected Urinary Tract Disease (2010-2012)

Transabdominal Ultrasonographic Examination of 26 Sheep with Suspected Urinary Tract Disease (2010-2012)

Transabdominal ultrasonography was undertaken in veterinary practice to examine 26 sheep reported by the farmer, to present with clinical signs consistent with obstructive urolithiasis. There was no evidence of calculi within the vermiform appendix, nor was the bladder imaged in 12 of these 26 sheep. Uroperitoneum was diagnosed in two of three growing male lambs, and resulted from urine leakage across the bladder wall not rupture. Gross hydronephrosis was identified ultrasonographically by the increased renal pelvis and thinner cortex, in six of eight adult male sheep with confirmed urethral obstruction.
