Retrograde hydropulsion will be explained and how it may be utilised to unblock the dog. Care of the patient, monitoring post blockage and fluid therapy care will be discussed. Each different types of urolith will be explored along with their individual treatments and nutritional management. We will also look at urinalysis and sediment analysis.
