January 2021 COM: Remarkably Large Ectopic Ureter
A 4-month old mixed breed puppy was surrendered to a rescue after being “rejected by breeder” for leaking urine.
An ultrasonographic examination of the abdomen identified an enlarged kidney and left ectopic ureter with suspect concurrent ureterocele.
This ectopic ureter was one of the largest our team of specialists has ever seen and wanted to share!
