A 4-Year-old, female Yorkshire Terrier was presented with a history of dysuria, hematuria for past 2 months and passaging of calculi in the urine. Physical examination revealed hard and distended urinary bladder. Physiological and hematological parameters were within normal range. Multiple cystic calculi and a large urethral calculus were diagnosed with radiography. Analysis of the voided stone disclosed it as struvite calculi. Midventral laparotomy and cystotomy was performed to retrieve all the cystoliths. Post-operatively, antibiotics and analgesics were followed along with medical management to prevent recurrence. Animal recovered uneventfully without recurrence with follow up for 6 months postoperatively.
