Urethral lengths were determined in male and female cats and in female dogs from positive contrast retrograde urethrocystograms at 2 levels of urinary bladder distension. Urethral lengths were longer on urethrograms obtained after urinary bladder distension in female cats and in 7 of 8 female dogs. The intrapelvic and penile urethra were longer after bladder distension in 4 of 6 male cats. In female cats, urethral lengths significantly increased (P less than 0.05) after urinary bladder distension.
