The kidneys are two small fist-sized organs located behind the abdomen on each side of the spine. By producing urine, kidneys remove toxic by-products and excess fluids from the body to help maintain a critical balance of salt, potassium and acid. Common kidney disorders include urinary obstruction, blockage of the ureter and UPJ obstruction.
The bladder is a hollow organ that stores urine. It is located inside the lower abdomen, is about the size of a grapefruit, and is distensible (elastic) which allows its muscular wall to get larger and smaller.
