Pepper

Apocrine Gland Adenocarcinoma

Pepper is a 15-year-old Poodle Mix, whose owners had noticed an increase in anal secretions along with an odor, which prompted them to take Pepper to his primary veterinarian. He was then referred to WVRC to treat apocrine gland adenocarcinoma of the anal sac. Dr. Reed removed the cancerous mass, which had thankfully not metastasized, and Dr. Custead began chemotherapy treatment. Pepper has completed his treatments and has now officially “Kicked Cancer’s Tail!”
