The aim of this study is to raising the possible difficulties and the complications met in intra and post-operatively during a radical prostatectomy (RP). Four (n=4) healthy Atlas Shepherd Dog, of 2 years old underwent a RP on the level of the canine clinical pathology of Tiaret veterinary science Institute (Algeria). A clinical and echographic follow-up post-operative revealed the presence of a light urinary incontinence, solved in the short run for two dogs. Whereas it is persistent and complicated in cystitis and a leakage of the urine at the anastomosis site in the two other dogs. A treatment containing antibiotics systemically and locally associated with a disinfection of the wounds was set up. Following a hospitalization two dogs were restored completely, whereas the two others had inevitable complications been dependant on the urinary system. For a good management of the complications related to total prostatectomy, a rigorous clinical follow-up, associated with an ultrasonographic examination prove to be essential.
