July 20/2016 ------Kane came to us in January 2016 from Ohio where his owners could no longer care for him and his chronic urine issues. He had kidney stones that the owners left untreated for way to long and decided he needed a better chance. His bladder wall and uretha was inflamed and irritated, he had multiple UTI's enlarged prostate, and was constantly dripping urine. Now fast forward to July 2016 - after being on MULTIPLE different antibiotics, having multiple blood tests and urinalysis done along with x-rays, ultrasounds and special cultures being sent out time and time again, and even having a surgery called a "Urithrostomy", where they relocate the uretha so instead of peeing out of his penis, he pees out of a new, created opening, similiar to a vagina, he is still having leaking issues. So after going to a Michigan State University Veterinarian specialist in the Internal Medicine department, they are now recommending to do a contrast test, where they will put a catheter in his uretha and put a "die" in there to see where the urine is going. They may also put a scope/camera in there as well to look around and do some scrapings. Chances are good he will need to have a very expensive ($4000) surgery to fix his chronic issues.
