Red rubber urethral catheters can be difficult to place in female dogs since the catheters are not as rigid as polypropylene
catheters. But polypropylene can be traumatic. A polypropylene catheter makes a great stylet for the red rubber catheters,
however, if you use a polypropylene catheter one or two sizes smaller than the red rubber catheter.
