"According to clevelandclinic.org", the ureter is nothing more than the tube through which urine passes from the kidneys to the bladder, where it is stored. Aside from ectopic pregnancy, there is also a medical condition called ectopic ureter and that is what I want to talk about in this article.
An ectopic ureter is an anomaly of the ureter. It occurs when the ureter does not reach the urinary bladder in the correct anatomic position. This abnormality is very common in cats and dogs. The ectopic ureter may burrow within the bladder tissue before unfolding in an unusual location (intramural) or the distal ureter may root into an abnormal area without tunnelling (extramural).
Studies have shown that there are different signs you might experience if you have an ectopic ureter. Some of them include;
. Continual or intermittent urinary
. Incontinence (leakage) or urinary accidents
. Difficulty potty training
. Urine leakage when laying down and/or sleeping
Try to seek medical help if you begin to experience these symptoms.
