A two-year-old male domestic short hair cat was referred with a history of lower urinary tract obstruction. Four months previously, this animal showed clinical signs of hematuria. On physical examination, the cat showed signs of mild abdominal cramping and painful urination or dysuria. Abdominal radiography was also performed, and the result showed a radiopaque material-a bullet- within the bladder lumen. Cystotomy was performed to remove the bullet from the urinary bladder. At that time, amikacin was used according to bacterial culture (Enterobacter spp.) and drug susceptibility results. Three weeks after surgery, the cat was presented to the Small Animal Hospital for a health check-up. There were no clinical signs or any complications to be seen.
