Mass Protrusion from the Vaginal Area in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Treatment is typically done on an outpatient basis. If there is a protruding mass, it is important to keep the area clean and watch for problems urinating, as they are common. The recurrence rate is high; 66-100% of animals will have the medical condition return after treatment.

 

Living and Management

 

If the animal is unable to urinate, this is a sign of a serious medical condition and should be treated immediately. The outcome for the animal is positive, but there are complications that can occur when the urethra is involved.

 

Prevention

 

There are no current prevention methods for this medical condition.
