A 10 year old female dog was presented with history of difficulty in defecation, perineal swelling and swollen mass in the vaginal region. Physical examination showed characteristic signs of hernia on right side of the perineum. Under general anaesthesia surgery was performed and entire growth on the vaginal wall was excised completely. Another incision over the perineal swelling revealed pelvic fat herniation. After reducing the contents, herniorrhaphy was performed by suturing the pelvic diaphragm muscles and skin sutures were applied. Histopathologically, vaginal mass contained numerous polyhydral cells and each cell contains fat globule and nucleus pushed to mature fat cells. These findings confirmed as a case of lipoma. This is a record of successful management of an uncommon case of perineal hernia along with lipoma in a female dog.
