Abstract

Five dogs diagnosed as apocrine gland adenocarcinoma (AGAC) of the anal sac based on cytology and/ or histology. Mean age of these dogs was 11 years old. One dog treated with supportive care without other medical interventions for hypercalcemia was died one month after diagnosis. Other four dogs were treated with chemotherapy and one of these dogs was intervened with complete surgical resection. Two months after the diagnosis, one of the dogs treated with chemotherapy died. The survival time of other survived three dogs from the time of diagnosis was 19, 9, and 13 months respectively and they are still alive at this time. After chemotherapy, three dogs were managed generally in good body condition and maintained as similar in size as time of diagnosis. The results are suggested that it is worthwhile to try chemotherapy for managing AGAC in dogs especially complicated or metastasized to regional lymph nodes.
