Introduction
Ureteral obstruction in small animals is usually caused by urolithiasis, neoplasia and blood clots and less common causes include congenital stenosis. Ureteropelvic junction stenosis has been rarely documented in dogs.
Objectives
The present report case aimed to describe the clinical findings, treatment and outcomes of a congenital bilateral ureteropelvic junction stenosis in a puppy.

Introduction
Skin grafting is defined as a piece of skin transplanted to replace a lost portion of skin surface. Large wounds on head and limbs pose a challenge for the surgeon particularly when enormous portion of skin is lost. Skin on head and limbs is rather immovable limiting the opportunity for primary closure of the wound.
Objectives
Autogenous Mesh Skin grafting was carried out on eleven clinical cases of wounds in dogs. The objective of this study was to study the viability of these grafts, their suitability in covering wounds and to find out suitable donor area.
Methods
Clinical cases with large wounds on head and limbs presented at the clinic were taken up for skin grafting. Autogenous Mesh Skin grafting was carried out as per the technique recommended by Swaim (1980).
Results
    A 2-months-old Shih-Tzu male dog was presented to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, School of Veterinary Medicine And Animal Science, University Estadual Paulista, Botucatu, São Paulo, Brazil, for evaluation
of progressive abdomen distension of one month´s duration. The owner reported that the dog’s appetite was normal also the water drinking.
Results
 No change was observed in relation to urine. Complete blood count exams revealed mild anemia and lymphocytosis. Serum biochemical and urinalysis were within normal values. Abdominal X-rays and ultrasound findings were compatible with bilateral hydronephrosis. Excretory urography was performed and showed dilation of the renal pelvis and the medial region of the left ureter, bilateral stenosis of the ureteropelvic junction, and presence of high density material in renal cortex. These findings were consistent with ureteropelvic junction stenosis and the dog undergoing to partial ureterectomy and ureteropelvic anastomoses of both kidneys in interval of four months. Eighteen months after de surgery the dogs remained with mild hydronephrosis of the left kidneys and revealed no further abnormalities.
Conclusions
One previous report described ureteropelvic junction stenosis in dog. The present case reported a successfully surgical treatment of a congenital ureteropelvic junction stenosis in 2-months-old Shih-Tzu male dog.
