Abstract: A 48 days old female Rajapalayam puppy was presented to the Small Animal Unit of the Veterinary Surgery and Radiology Department, VCC, RIVER, Puducherry with a history of straining while voiding. Physical examination revealed protrusion of anorectal mucosa and the degree of prolapse was around 5 cm in diameter. By ultrasonography, rectal prolapse was differentiated from ileocolic intussusception. After manual reduction of rectal prolapse, purse string suture was applied around the anus and additional epidural anaesthesia was achieved to prevent re-prolapse. Colopexy was performed after repeated rectal prolapse in spite of manual reduction. Rectal straining was not noticed; hence non incisional technique was effective in preventing recurrent rectal prolapse.
