Healing of the urinary tract follows a series of events similar to other epithelial surfaces. This process, however, occurs more rapidly in the urinary tract. A variety of factors that can affect the healing response of the urinary tract are presented in this article. It is important for the veterinarian to be aware of these factors so that the appropriate surgical or medical treatment can be provided to the patient to optimize the healing processes.
