Hello, my name is***** and I will do my best to help you. I'm reviewing your question now and I will post back to you ASAP.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 9 months ago.

Barbara, the initial treatment, if there UTI (urinary tract infection) is antibiotics.

He most likely had this all of his life.

To definitely diagnose requires either a ultrasound or a contrast x=ray of the bladder.

Sometimes it can be surgically corrected by pulling the bladder back into the abdomen.

But without more information and imaging asking for a prognosis is unrealistic.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 9 months ago.

I wish I could give you a prognosis. But each case is unique.

See what your vet recommends after the UTI clears up.

An early sign can be urinary dribbling along with a UTI.

You vet is the best source of a prognosis.

Can i help you with more questions? We can continue if you wish.
