Objective: To evaluate the clinical features of ileocystoplasty (bladder augmentation) in dogs. Design: Experimental study.
Animals: Seven female 1-2 year-old mixed breed dogs between 15-24 kg body-weight. Procedures: Routine ileocystoplasty (similar to human
ileocystoplasty) was performed on dogs. The clinical parameters
(temperature, heart rate per minute, respiratory rate per minute, urine appearance, urinary continence, urethral obstruction following mucosal secretion and bowel obstruction) were evaluated for five weeks. Statistical analysis: A repeated measures (within-subjects) analysis of vanance was done to compare the means of quantitative vanables
at different times and descriptive study for qualitative variables. Results: Dogs tolerated the operation well and survived for 5 weeks without any postoperative complications. There no significant difference in heart rate per minute and respiratory rate per minute
in the study period. A significant increase in temperature was
observed at day 28 due to other laboratory examinations, but it was in normal range (P
