A case of obstructive urolithiasis with multiple calculi and unilateral hydronephrosis is presented. A 2.5 year old, intact male rabbit, weighing 1.5kg, was admitted due to a sudden onset of hind legs lameness. On clinical examination tachypnea and depression were noted and an abdominal hard (2x2cm) mass was palpated. Radiography and ultrasonography revealed uroliths in both kidneys and the left ureter, with dilatation of the latter cranially to the calculus. CBC revealed neutrophilia, lymphopenia, thrombocytosis and mild anemia. Biochemistry showed increased globulins, urea nitrogen, creatinine, glucose, bilirubin, lactate dehydrogenase and creatine kinase, as well as hypocalcaemia, hyperkalaemia and hypophosphataemia.
