What Clients are Saying
My dog had a mass on his back leg and I took him to our local vet. They wanted to charge me over $4,000 for surgery to remove it. I found Anicira online through a Google search and was able to get him in quickly. For the same procedure, I ended up paying 1/4 of what the local vet wanted. The Dr and staff were very professional and I was happy to leave my dog in their care. No problems with surgery and our dog is happy and healthy. Would definitely recommend.— Marci Baker via Google
Very friendly staff, the vet took the time to tell us everything about the operation and answer all of our questions!— Sam A via Google
What a wonderful experience! My 10 year old dog, Wiki had bladder stones and our local vet wanted $3100 for surgery which was not in our budget. Searching for options and very upset I found Anicira. The entire staff was so caring and went out of their way to accommodate Wiki. We were able to schedule surgery with 48 hours of our first contact. Their transparency to pricing was wonderful and true. I am truly grateful for them. Dr. Oelstrom is a blessing. Do not hesitate to go here. The facility is so clean and organized.— Kimber Elder via Google

Anal sacculectomy is a surgical procedure to remove one or both anal glands on a dog. Glands are typically removed due to inflammation or chronic infections.
Anal sacculectomy is a very effective procedure and will remove the glands that have chronic inflammation and infections. If inflammation from tumors is the cause then additional treatments might be needed. Due to the high amount of nerves around the rectum, never damage could be a risk. Some patients may have abnormal bowel movements immediately after surgery.
