Dog Health And Dog Perianal Infection or Inflammation Best Advice

Mar 15, 2008
Dog Peri-Anal Fistulas, which is anal inflammation and infection, is a very painful ordeal for a dog to suffer through and not only that it is also complicated and poses a difficult choice to the vet in terms of what sort of cure would be most appropriate.

Symptoms of Dog Peri-Anal Fistulas include the following:

1. The feces of the dog have a long stingy look to it.
2. The dog finds itself in a great amount of pain when trying to produce feces.
3. Appearance of small holes around the anus area which may be inflamed.

The cause for per-anal fistulas is not known as of yet and hence neither is the appropriate cure which is why it is so complicated and can be tricky for the vets.

The condition occurs when small holes called fistulas or even a single hole starts appearing around the dogs anus area. These holes may or may not be inflamed but they will eventually reach the tissue around the anus and then there are chances that it may spread out into further holes.

Due to the heavy amount of inflammation with the anus these holes will be very painful for the dog. Furthermore, the dog will feel severe pain while passing feces as the anus will be in a constant state of tense. This usually results in long thin lines of feces instead of how it usually looks.

As of yet there is no confirmed treatment for this condition and it is hard to diagnose it. Even though several surgical procedures and medicines have been tried there is no constant success rate and hence is up to the vet to prescribe the cure they find appropriate.

Antibiotics, cyclosporin and cortisone and other such medicines may be used by the vet to suppress the immune system.

On the other hand, the very may choose to perform a surgery. The surgical options available to the vet are to either remove the fistulas completely, to clean out the inside of the fistulas or to simply cut off the effected part of the anus and then later recreate it in order to cure the condition.

None of these treatments are certain and one may need to contact a specialist research centre in order to find the latest cure or the most up to date methods for treating this condition but after all that there are still chances that the condition may return to its original state.
