CHIPAYO G, Ysaac; HUERTA M, Carlos; OLAZABAL L, Juan  y  DIAZ C, Diego. Omentalization for the treatment of prostatic abscesses in dogs: two clinical cases. Rev. investig. vet. Perú [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.1052-1059. ISSN 1609-9117.

This paper presents the results of two cases of prostatic omentalization conducted in two canine patients who were diagnosed with prostatic abscess. The patients were 9 and 13 years old. They presented fever, frequent urination, decay, anorexia, and abdominal pain. The ultrasound showed presence of cysts/abscesses in the prostate gland. The surgical technique was developed in a simple manner without the need of using complex equipment outside the basic surgical material. Patients recovered quickly from the surgical procedure without having post-surgery complications. It is concluded that the technique of prostatic omentalization allows the effective treatment of intra-prostatic abscesses in dogs.
