J D Parrah, B A Moulvi, H Akhtar, N Handoo


The  present  study  was  conducted  on  30  male  calves  suffering  fromobstructive urolithiasis. The animals were divided into two equal groups based on the whether the urinary bladder was intact (group A) or ruptured (group B). All the animals were operated under same anesthetic technique. It was noted that duration of illness had a significant effect on the status of the urinary bladder while there was non-significant effect of the status of the urinary bladder on the condition of the animal. Cystic mucosa was found inflamed and hemorrhagic in most of the cases and the quantity of urine collected varied from 3.0  17.5 liters. The site of urethral calculi retrieval was pre- and post-scrotal region (3 cases), proximal sigmoidflexure (2 cases) and distal sigmoid flexure (4 cases).
