Anal Gland Adenocarcinoma Treatment for Pets in Melbourne

Our veterinary clinic in Melbourne offers specialized treatment for pets diagnosed with Anal Gland Adenocarcinomas, a type of cancer that affects the anal glands. We are committed to providing advanced care and support for pets with this challenging condition.

Diagnosing Anal Gland Adenocarcinomas

Effective diagnosis is key to successful treatment:

  • Physical Examination: A thorough examination of the anal area to check for lumps or abnormalities.
  • Fine Needle Aspiration or Biopsy: These procedures are performed to obtain a sample of the tumor for definitive diagnosis.
  • Imaging Tests: Radiographs (X-rays), ultrasounds, or CT scans may be used to evaluate the extent of the disease and check for metastasis (spread) to other organs.

Treatment Options

Treatment for Anal Gland Adenocarcinomas often involves a multi-modal approach:

  • Surgical Removal: The primary treatment is surgical removal of the tumor, which may include the anal glands and surrounding tissues.
  • Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy: Depending on the stage and spread of the cancer, chemotherapy or radiation therapy may be recommended in addition to surgery.


The cost for treating Anal Gland Adenocarcinomas can vary, depending on the stage of the cancer, the chosen treatment methods, and the need for follow-up care. A detailed cost estimate will be provided following your pet’s evaluation.
