Herbal remedies for fistulas and perianal fistulas in dogs and cats.

A fistula is an abnormal connection that forms between two tissues, organs, or vessels that normally do not connect. The condition is usually associated with an infection in the perianal region, which becomes inflamed and irritated. The disorder is painful and progressive for dogs and cats.

In its earliest stages, there may be only a few clinical signs and the condition may go unnoticed. Some cases are discovered during a routine physical examination or when a dog or cat is bathed or groomed.

Common symptoms of fistula include:



Weight loss





Inability to control the bowels (fecal incontinence)

Ulcerations in the perianal region

As the disease progresses, the affected dog or cat will usually strain during defecation, and there will be blood in the feces. Behavior changes are common, and your pet may lose its appetite, also referred to as anorexia and may lick excessively at its tail and rectal regions. Some animals will be reluctant to sit, may be unable to move their tails normally and may become aggressive if their hindquarters are touched.

The cause of fistulas is not fully understood. The condition affects all breeds and genders of dogs and cats. For dogs, German Shepherds are most commonly affected by perianal fistulas.

Unneutered male cats may present more frequently, as well as cats with a broad tail base, or those that carry it low, are thought to have inflammation in the perianal region because it has less ventilation. There is also a higher incidence of this type of inflammation in cats that have sweat glands in the region.
