Ureteral Stent


For more information on ureteral obstruction and other options see here

  • Recommended therapy for dogs
  • Available in variety of size and lengths
  • Surgical vs. endoscopic placement
  • Pigtail coils keep stent from migrating
  • Unilateral or bilateral as needed
  • Can be maintained for life of the pet
  • Avoids high risk of stricture (scar tissue obstruction) and leakage associated with surgery on the ureters.

Please schedule an appointment with our board-certified surgeon, Dr. Jeff Christiansen at the clinic of your choice, to evaluate your pet and to discuss ureteral stenting to improve your pet's or patient's length and quality of life.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to e-mail Dr. Christiansen directly.

  • "My Labradoodle, LuLu, needed knee surgery. Her health is my top priority, so I researched Veterinary Surgeons, and Dr. Christiansen was highly recommended to me. My experience with him has been wonderful, and Lulu loves him. His demeanor with her was so compassionate, you could really see how much he cares about animals.

    Lulu is fully recovered from her surgery, yet I still look to Dr. Christiansen as a source of advice and expertise regarding Lulu's well being."
