Vulvar agenesis in an eight-month-old toy poodle dog is described. Urinary incontinence and dysuria were the main clinical signs. The morphology of the urogenital system was assessed with contrast radiography. The constructers of lower urinary tract and reproductive system except for the vulva were normal features. Through episiostomy, a perineal stoma, resembling a vulva, was created, resulting in complete resolution of the clinical signs.
Key Words: agenesis, episiostomy, poodle dog, vulva
