ABSTRACT
: This clinical case report described a three-month-old mongrel dog that had the urethral orifice opening 3 cm from the tip of the penis and lacked a completely formed preputial sheath. It was presented to the clinic with an exposed penile shaft that was dry. The dog had urinary incontinence that was not of neurological origin. It also had unilateral agenesis of the right testicle. The preputial sheath was successfully reconstructed. Urinary incontinence stopped soon after surgery, suggesting that it had been probably due to an ascending urethritis. A large preputial opening was left because of the location of the urethral opening.

Figure 2: The prepuce was missing from the bulbus glandis cranially.

Mentions: A three-month-old mongrel dog, weighing 12 kg, was admitted to the veterinary hospital with urinary incontinence and an exposed and dry penis that appeared unsightly (Figure 1). The referring veterinarian had informed the owner that the dog had severe paraphimosis and that the penis could not be readily replaced into the preputial sheath. On physical examination, there was urine scald of the skin on the ventral abdomen and urinary incontinence. The exposed penis was dry. The preputial sheath was absent from the bulbus glandis to the tip of the penis (Figure 2) but the dorsal mucosa of the incompletely formed sheath was present on the ventral abdominal wall. The penile urethra was opening 3 cm from the tip of the penis. On catheterisation, the urethra was patent up to the urinary bladder. The dog had a retained testicle. There was no evidence of neurological deficits. Retrograde cystourethrography did not reveal any other abnormalities.
