On October 22, 1946, a 4-year-old male German Shepherd was admitted to the Stange Memorial Clinic. The owner's history of the case included vomiting and failure to eat for 3 days. The owner was reasonably sure that the dog had not passed urine for several days. The bladder had been emptied by the local veterinarian through the use of a trocar and canula on the morning of the day that the case was admitted.
