This four year old gelding was presented with swelling and difficulty peeing.  Initially we thought he had been kicked but at sedation a Loonie sized kidney/bladder stone was removed from his urethra, at the end of his penis.  This gelding may have to have his penis amputated, we are treating him conservatively and are still hopeful.

October 4, 2011 update

This four year old gelding recovered very well.  Recently he began exhibiting similar symptoms as before, the result was another huge stone removed from his penis.  His diet and water source have been changed.

  Dr. Domoslai here, I would like to update you on an interesting case.  The bucking horse finally succumbed and on post-mortem had his entire kidneys and bladder were filled with large stones (approximately one gallon of material similar to the scale in a tea kettle)
