Urolithiasis, aka urinary tract stones, are one of the most common forms of urinary tract issues requiring surgical intervention for treatment. A Perineal Urethrostomy is a surgical procedure performed to open the urethra allowing for improved urine flow.  In male cats which have obstructed, or "blocked", causing scaring and structural strictures in the urethra the PU surgical procedure resects, or amputates, the end segment of the penis where the stricture generally occurs, allowing for a larger urethral opening to be created. In male dogs, the PU surgery creates a new opening in the urethra to improve urine flow, without having to resect or amputate the penis.

Our veterinary practice surgical protocols for perineal urethrostomy include our hospitals standards of physical examination, blood profile, IV catheter and IV fluids, pre and post operative pain relief including the use of a 3 day narcotic pain patch, anesthesia, surgical procedure, sample collection for bacterial culture and antibiotic sensitivity testing, two day hospital stay, a bite not or e-collar, antibiotics to go home and the post operative follow-up appointment with mild sedation for suture removal.
