Ectopic ureters are diagnosed using different techniques and/or combinations of various imaging studies. Surgical correction is the standard treatment for dogs with an ectopic ureter, and these surgical techniques include neoureterostomy, ureteroneocystostomy, and nephroureterectomy. The aim of this report is to describe two cases of ectopic ureter successfully treated with surgery. Cases: In case 1, a 2-month-old female poodle, weighing 1.3 kg, with urinary incontinence since birth was presented to our veterinary service. Excretory urography revealed an ectopic ureter, and ureteroneocystostomy was performed. Abdominal ultrasonography performed 30 days after surgery revealed left renal pyelectasis and ureteral dilatation. Based on these fi ndings, nephrectomy was performed. In case 2, a 3-month-old Golden Retriever, weighing 13.5 kg, with urinary incontinence since birth was brought to our veterinary service. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed a small left kidney and left ureteral dilation. Laparotomy was performed and revealed bilateral intramural ectopic ureters. Based on these findings, bilater
