Two German shepherd dog aging six and eight years were presented to Department of Veterinary Surgery, Tirupati with the history of scrotal swelling. Physical examination revealed enlarged and pendulous scrotum. Ultrasonography and percutaneous drainage of fluids were performed. It revealed the presence of serous fluid in the intrascrotal structures, suggestive of hydrocele. Under general anaesthesia, scrotal ablation was performed. The animals were premedicated with atropine sulphate and xylazine hydrochloride. The animal was induced and maintained using propofol intravenously. Curvilinear incision was made on both sides at the base of scrotum and both the testes were separated and ligated using Chromic Catgut no.1. Both the testicles were removed along with the scrotal skin and scrotal septum. Subcuticular and skin sutures were placed. Regular post operative care was given and both the animals had an uneventful recovery.
