Hi Winston, glad everything came out okay A lot of vets leave the sac nowadays. They say it's less invasive that way. I personally think that what breed the dog is should be taken into account--I was shocked out of my gourd when I brought Lightning home to the vet and saw his "remnant". Luckily he was only about six months old or so when the procedure was done. If he'd been any more developed it would have been pretty embarrassing. But once the rest of him started sagging that bit became less and less noticeable.
