|A male dog and cat were evaluated because of clinical signs associated with hydronephrosis.
Both animals had ectopic ureters, but neither had urinary incontinence.
The diagnoses were made by use of ultrasonography, excretory urography, retrograde urethrocystography, and surgery.
In both animals, hydronephrosis was bilateral but of unequal severity, such that unilateral ureteronephrectomy could be performed.
Both animals underwent ureteroneocystostomy of the remaining ureter.
This treatment resulted in good clinical outcome during follow-up periods of 18 months and 3 years.
