Today’s case is a 12-year-old male neutered Jack Russell terrier hit by car earlier today. No palpable bladder. Take a look and post your comments.
There are multiple pelvic fractures including the right acetabulum, bilateral ischium, pubis. The left coxofemoral joint and right sacroiliac joint are luxated.
A cystourethrogram was performed to evaluate the position and integrity of the urethra and bladder. Contrast material was injected into the urethra. There is no evidence of leakage of the contrast material from the urethra or urinary bladder. It seems that the urinary bladder is located inside the abdomen. The cranioventral portion of the bladder seems to be in a ventral position compared to its normal anatomical position.
