Over a period of 54 months, 3518 dogs and 3806 cats were castrated; 240 of the dogs and 50 of the cats were cryptorchid. Pedigree dogs, in particular the German shepherd dog, boxer and chihuahua were overrepresented. Among the dogs, right-sided inguinal cryptorchidism was the most common form, followed by right-sided abdominal cryptorchidism. The location of the affected testicle(s) was most variable in the boxer. Among the cats, left- or right-sided inguinal cryptorchidism were the most common… Expand

TLDR
Those common diseases that affect the scrotal contents including testis and epididymis, the accessory genital glands especially the prostate, and the penis and prepuce are covered. Expand
Surgical diseases of the genital tract in male dogs 1. Scrotum, testes and epididymides
TLDR
The surgical diseases and treatment of the scrotum, testes and epididymides of dogs and the surgical techniques used to manage disorders of the penis and prepuce are discussed. Expand

TLDR
A 21-month-old male castrated domestic short hair cat was presented and laparoscopic-assisted cryptorchidectomy was performed, offering the benefits of minimal invasive surgery, which is still underreported in the veterinary literature. Expand
Is the right testis more affected by cryptorchidism than the left testis? An ultrasonographic approach in dogs of different sizes and breeds.
TLDR
Ultrasound scan proved a valuable diagnosis tool for cryptorchid testes, giving precise localization and parenchymal changes thus leading to a safe clinical treatment. Expand
Characteristics of cryptic/ectopic and contralateral scrotal testes in dogs between 1 and 2 years of age.
TLDR
The results seem to suggest that, though the early removal of the undescended testis is recommended, continuous monitoring of the scrotal testis for the life of the dog is preferable to removing it considering the undesirable side effects related to castration. Expand
Surgical management of urolithiasis and unilateral cryptorchidism in a German shephard
TLDR
A four year old male German shepherd presented with the history of anuria for the past two days and dribbling urine for thePast six months and under general anaesthesia a mid ventral ceiliotomy performed. Expand
A Rare Clinical Case Of Double Scrotum With Ectopic Testicle In a Dog
TLDR
The peculiarity of this case is the presence of two independent scrota, an ectopic testicle and its adnexa passing through the abdominal wall, was not supposed to be due a migration along the typical male gonad path during descent. Expand
A rare case of polyorchidism in a cat with four intra-abdominal testes.
TLDR
This case suggests that supernumerary testes should be included as differential diagnoses for intra-abdominal masses, as no previous studies in veterinary medicine have reported the presence of four testes. Expand

ABSTRACT: This study aimed to characterize the prevalence and clinical, macroscopic and histopathological aspects of dogs affected by testicular tumors based on biopsy specimens from the LaboratórioExpand
Morphological analysis of testicles in cats with disorders of sex development.
TLDR
The results of immunohistochemical examination indicate that in the testes of cats with DSD the number of supporting cells is lower, the amount of interstitial cells is comparable and spermatogenesis is correct es compared to those determined in the control gonads. Expand

TLDR
Thirty-six of the 56 retained testicles were in the inguinal region and only 20 in the abdomen, a difference which was not observed in the earlier work, which may have been due to the criteria for defining the testicles' location on the basis of the method used to remove them. Expand

High incidence of cryptorchidism in this colony provided good evidence for hereditary nature of the condition in the Miniature Schnauzer dog. Expand

TLDR
Canine cryptorchidism is a congenital defect that results from sex-limited autosomal recessive gene(s), and affected individuals and their siblings should be eliminated from a breeding program to decrease incidence of the defect. Expand
Cryptorchidism in the dog: occurrence of cryptorchidism and semen quality in the cryptorchid dog.
TLDR
In the cryptorchid dogs semen volume and total number of spermatozoa were few, sperm motility was low, and abnormal sperm and immature sperm rate were high, as compared with semen qualities in normal dog. Expand
Canine cryptorchism and subsequent testicular neoplasia: case-control study with epidemiologic update.
TLDR
The dog should be an excellent model system to further investigate the causes of human cryptorchism and inguinal hernia with testis neoplasms, because the anatomical development of the genital tract, testis descent, and tunic relationships in dog are very similar to that in man. Expand

TLDR
The feasibility of conducting prospective epidemiologic studies of canine diseases with the assistance of practicing veterinarians is demonstrated and testicular neoplasms that developed did so within the first year of observation are demonstrated. Expand
