Our 15 year old mixed Corgi was just diagnosed with perianal adenoma. The vet thinks he may be to old for surgery.He is on 2 weeks of Clavamox 250mg.to prevent any infection. Also to apply cold packs for 5 mins.to the mass to try to reduce the size. We are very saddened.

I have a sheltie that is a little over 7 years old. A few nights ago there was a horrible smell when he was laying on the floor by me and while he usually is not a gassy dog, I thought he had gas because it would come and go every so often. A day and a half later I came home from shopping and the smell hit me as soon as I opened the door. I thought it was an anal gland problem but when I tried to look he had gotten some feces matted into the fur around his anus and was bleeding a little bit. I put him in the tub and tried to wash it off to get a better look but he was uncomfortable and the smell was so incredibly strong I was gagging. I called the vet who decided it sounded like an anal gland issue as well and suggested I crate him for the night and bring him in first thing in the morning to take care of him. The vet shaved the matted fur from his anus and discovered a perianal adenoma. It was ulcered and bleeding and looked awful. The vet asked a colleague to look at it to get a second opinion to determine if they could surgically remove it without interfering with the muscles around the anus and we all decided to go ahead an neuter him as well to prevent this and future issues that arise with intact male dogs. He is recovering well from his surgeries, but being an older dog it is harder on him then for the puppies. I had always wanted to get him neutered as a puppy, but my husband had big plans of breeding him. I would suggest whether you breed or not, to strongly consider getting your dog neutered once he turns 7 years old.

My 9 year old cocker spaniel was spayed at age 7 y.o. and developed a perianal adenoma about 1 year later.I wasn't told there was any urgency and 1 year later she has 4 small ones. We were told to remove them they could not promise that he would be able to not get into the sphincter muscle and she would not be able to hold her stool. The other option given me was that not to remove them and they would develop into ulcers and become infected. I went for a second opinion and found out it is fairly common in cockers and if they are spayed that if they are still there that a problem with her pituitary gland. This would be Cushings disease and can be treated. She had the test done and is positive. We are now waiting to get the best option for treating this along with the surgery.She is a very active healthy dog and brings much joy to our family.

My 10 year old FEMALE dog currently has one of these. She is spayed, so they can also occur in altered dogs and in female dogs.

My 9 yr old Siberian Husky was just diagnosed with Perianal Adenoma today. He was neutered at a young age (maybe 2 or 3). I,too, find it interesting that it is more common in older males that are still intact. He is having surgery tomorrow to have it removed. I pray that it isn't cancerous.

My 10 year old neutered male Westie just had a Perianal Adenoma removed. The vet said they usually see it in intact males. I guess it can happen to any dog.

My 10 year old neutered Golden Retriever just had a Perianal Adenoma removed. He was neutered at 1 1/2 years old. He never bothered his rear at all - I was the one who discovered the lump right under his tail. Everything I have read so far has always stated UN-neutered males over 8 years of age. Is it common for a neutered dog to also get this condition and if so why and could I possibly have done anything to prevent it? He has NEVER been obsessed with his rear at all - no scooting, no licking - nothing...
