Abstract

Phimosis is a rare condition in dogs, characterized by the inability to externalize the penis from inside the foreskin, resulting in discomfort for the affected animals. This disease can be congenital or acquired, secondary to inflammatory, neoplastic, lacerations and scarring. The most common complication of phimosis is balanoposthitis. The objective was to report the case of phimosis in a canine puppy, seen at the veterinary clinic Uningá. The 2-month-old dog, SRD, presented an increase in foreskin volume, polyuria, dysuria and pain in the manipulation of the foreskin. There were no changes in hematological tests. The animal in question was submitted to an ultrasound examination to rule out other possible causes of phimosis, such as neoplasms, for example. The patient was referred for a postioplasty and elective orchiectomy procedure. We conclude that phimosis in dogs is a rare condition, but it has a good prognosis in the short and medium terms, as long as the surgical intervention is performed correctly.
