Percutaneous nephrostomy catheters modified by cutting off the tubing connectors were implanted in three dogs with prostatic neoplasia to relieve or prevent stranguria. One catheter was implanted with a guide wire through a perineal urethrotomy, and two catheters were implanted via celiotomy and cystotomy. Morbidity and complications were minimal. Inflammation of the abdominal incision was present from day 4 to day 8 in the dogs with celiotomy. Urinary incontinence was continuous in one dog and intermittent in two dogs. Hematuria occurred in two dogs. The retained urethral catheter was a suitable palliative treatment for urethral obstruction in three dogs with prostatic neoplasia.
