The urethra is a tube leading from the bladder to the exterior, serving for the passage of the urine.
Sometimes it is the seat of obstruction or stricture, i.e., a narrowing of it.
Congestion, spasmodic contraction, and organic changes are the principal causes.
The chief sign is the passage of urine in drops, together with pain.
Give a hot bath, 20-drop doses of chlorodyne in a little water, and consult a qualified veterinary surgeon.
