WVC 91st Annual Conference
Chronic vaginitis and incontinence
Occasionally young female dogs present with chronic vaginitis, frequent UTI’s and intermittent urinary incontinence. Vulvar conformational abnormalities can be the underlying cause of all three. Surgical correction of the vulvar abnormality may be curative. This session will deal with the author’s vulvarplasty technique. Video of a clinical case will be used to facilitate understanding of the technique.
Oronasal fistula repair
Occasionally you will encounter chronic oronasal fistula’s secondary to maxillary canine tooth extractions or severe periodontitis resulting in tooth and maxillary bone loss. Closure of the fistula can be difficult particularly if the defect is large. This presentation illustrates two techniques that can be considered for closing these large defects. Video of a clinical case with bilateral oronasal fistula will be used to illustrate these techniques.
