Bilateral deferentopexy represents a surgical technique of major relevance, in preventing recurrence of perineal hernias in intact male dogs. Ductus deferens, isolated during orhidectomy, and sutured afterwards ventrally on abdominal wall, are intended to exert a cranial traction and mantainance of urinary bladder and adnexal glands of reproductive system; thereby, the exerted pressure of these viscera on perineal region is significantly diminished postoperatively, avoiding recurrence. An intact caniche male, eleven years old received a diagnosis of unilateral perineal hernia. The surgery consisted in two procedures: bilateral orchiectomy followed by deferentopexy and perineal muscle suture. Perineal hernias, encountered in males older than 7 years, occur due to prostatic hypertrophy which generates a repetitive pressure in the perineal area, the predisposing factor being the striated muscle degeneration consistent in rhabdomyolysis.
