If your dog just isn't up for a free-catch sample, the other options are catheterization (for male dogs) and cystocentesis
(often just referred to as "cysto") is a procedure that involves the collection of urine directly from the urinary bladder through a needle that is passed through the abdominal wall into the bladder.
the bladder was griped and urine was collected under sterilized conditions by using 23 gauge needle at an angle of 45Adeg as per Crow and Swlshaw (1987).
Urine samples were collected by cystocentesis
with sterile syringes during evisceration.
Urine, blood and bone marrow samples were collected by jugular venipuncture, cystocentesis
and/or urethral catheter, and sternal puncture, respectively.
It was fortunate that this dog had not undergone a "blind stick" for cystocentesis
, since it is likely that the hydrocolpos would have been perforated at that time.
Based on history per abdominal cystocentesis
using 20 gauge hypodermic needle was done to relieve pressure from extremely tense urinary bladder.
5 mg/kg of furosemide (a diuretic) to animals to collect their urine during micturition or by cystocentesis
Additionally, medial cystocentesis
was performed to evaluate urine, which was evaluated with strips and an optic microscope for sediment.
The beauty of a cystocentesis
sample is that, if bacteria are detected, one can be certain they were living in the bladder.
A more accurate sample can be collected by doing a cystocentesis
A dog's oral swab and cystocentesis
for urine collection were carried out immediately Cystocentesis
was performed by aseptic technique: prepubic hair was clipped and the skin was cleaned and disinfected with alcohol and clorhexidine before the insertion of a needle connected to a 10 mL syringe to collect urine directly from the dog's bladder.
