On Nov. 3, 1957, a 12-year old, spayed, Toy Collie bitch was admitted to the Stange Memorial Clinic. A history of frequent urination, which produced only a few drops of urine, was given. Also, the dog was mildly depressed and anorexic but showed no vomition. Upon abdominal palpation the urinary bladder was found to be greatly distended; firm objects could be felt that produced a gritting sensation when they moved against each other. A diagnosis of cystic calculi was made.
