Interventional uroendoscopy is a growing field in veterinary medicine which provides minimally invasive and/or novel therapies for diseases in the dog and cat. This webinar will introduce three interventional procedures: 1) Cystoscopic-guided laser ablation for ectopic ureters (CLA-EU); 2) Endoscopic ureteral stenting; 3) Endoscopic laser lithotripsy. Discussion will focus on indications, contraindications, outcomes, and case examples for each procedure.
