A dog with a 9-month history of a chronic draining tract involving the left flank had previously undergone five surgeries and two drain placements with no permanent resolution of the draining tract. Fistulography and computed tomography were useful in characterizing the draining tract and identifying a suspected foreign body. Surgery was performed and a nylon cable band foreign body was removed.
