|A 10-year-old female spayed Vizsla had intermittent mucoid ocular discharge from the right eye for 7 years.
History, clinical findings, imaging studies, and culture and histopathology results confirmed chronic dacryocystitis with granuloma.
A dacryocystomaxillorhinostomy was performed to preserve the functional portions of the nasolacrimal system remaining in this patient, as well as to promote healing of the lacrimal sac granuloma and secondary infection.
Complete resolution of the clinical abnormalities was achieved, and the dog remains healthy 3 years postoperatively.
