Abstract
A 6-year-old castrated male Maltese weighing 4.8 kg was presented with a non-healing wound exhibiting purulent discharge
after surgery on scar tissue of a chronic twelve-month-old bite wound on the left caudal abdominal region. The dog had previously
undergone four surgeries and had been on continuous antibiotic therapy for eight months. Following radiographic and ultrasonographic
examinations, the problem was diagnosed as an enterocutaneous fistula of a herniated bowel loop under the skin. Surgical resection of
the fistula involving the bowel loop resolved all symptoms.
