Perineal herniorrhaphy in dogs - analysis of 35 cases
During a twelve-year period, from January 1980 to December 1992, 35 male dogs with perineal hernia were managed by the author. These dogs were submitted to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH), Universidade Federal de Santa Maria. RS, Brazil. The prevalence of herniation represented 0.5% of the dogs and cats seen at VTH in this period. The complications diagnosed were as the follow: retroflexion of the urinary bladder, rectal dilatation or diverticulum, necrotic retroperitoneal fat and serum or serosanguineous effusion. The surgical efficiency are dependent of digestive and urinary patency, obliteration of the perineal opening and control of tenesmus and infection.
