Meet the beautiful Sugar, a 6 year old boxer who recently visited our hospital because she was bothered by her bottom! We performed a full health check and during the physical examination where we expressed Sugar's anal glands, it was noticed that she had an unusual discharge which indicated an infection.
After a number of courses of antibiotics, the infection was not resolving so it was decided that Sugar would have her anal sacs removed. The procedure to remove Sugar's anal sacs was very delicate and uses a special fluroescent green surgical wax to localise them for removal. This special surgery was performed by our new star surgeon Dr Andrew Jacotine. We are happy to announce that Sugar is recovering well from her surgery!
