Animal Health > Anal Fistulas

An anal fissure is a superficial tear in the wall of the anus and is most commonly caused by passage of a large, hard stool or chronic diarrhea. This is most often a result of an inadequate diet and/or a lack of exercise and untreated anal fissures can result in abscesses.
The symptoms are Rectal pain, Pain with bowel movements, Bloody stools (Typically, bright-red blood appears on surface of stools. Blood usually is not mixed into stool).

The cure therefore is to ensure a more balanced diet and adequate exercise. Recovery can take weeks or even months using diet alone. Colloidal silver cream applied 2 x daily can be helpful and some vets use Protopic ointment, however the FDA has issued a warning that it may cause cancer.

Christina Writes:
I would like to let you know about my dog who had annul fistulas. He started bleeding from the fistulas in December of 2003. I took him to 2 Vets who told me that there was nothing they could do. Then One day I was talking to my son in California, and he told me about his fathers german shepard who had annul fistulas too, and that his Vet changed his dogs diet to Natures Recipe, Fish and potatoe dry dog food, and the vegetarian went by Natures Recipe. And only vegetarian bones by Old Mother Hubbard. And using Protopic (tacrolimus ointment) 0.1%. 1 small pea sized dab around the fistula once a day. I just took my dog to the Vet again, and he was amazed. He told me to write a testimonial. 
If you have any questions about this please contact my vet Dr. Guntly at Agawam Animal Hospital 65 Mill St Agawam, MA, USA 01001 Ph. 413-786-4440
