Problem Near Rectum


Recommended Posts

I noticed Dylans rectum looked red and swollen today. I lifted his tail and noticed a small red bump. It looks like he has a bite or cut maybe. I have an appointment with the vet this afternoon, but was wondering if anyone has any suggestions?? It really looks like a hemmroid bulging out. It's only on the right side of the rectum...Any thoughts?? It was not there yesterday as I always looks when he poops to make sure he is clean.

I am also thinking an infected anal gland.

 

This is something the vet had to address, if that is what it is. Might want to get him looked at. Good Luck! This kind of stuff is never fun, poor guy!

Well, we just got back from the vet. It is an absecced anal gland. I'm freaking out right now. They expressed both glands and said they were like toothpaste. They injected panalog into the absecced one and he is on Clavamox. I gave him a Tramadol also as he is very uncomfortable. Any advise??

If it's OK with your vet, you could alternate a warm, moist pack to the area and switch with cool packs. I did that after Ady Bea's episioplasty surgery and it relieved her discomfort a great deal. Be sure they aren't TOO hot or TOO cold.

I don't have any advise about what to do right now, but once it's healed I would keep a good eye on things. If he starts to have trouble pooping or drags his butt or licks his butt a lot, then bring him to the vet to express his glands. Also, if it smells really bad, once he's allowed to be bathed, bathe with some dish soap back there and it should help the smell.

 

I hope he feels better soon.

Gracie had a ruptured anal gland. I had no idea she had a problem as she really wasn't licking the area much.

My vet said while it looked yucky, it gave her much relief to have finally ruptured. She was treated with antibiotics and it healed quickly.

Teagan infected anal glands. They also injected antibiotic ointment into the glands. It took a few treatments to work. The oral antibiotics alone didn't help at all. Good luck!

My IG has blown glands twice, last time both at once! She never spends an excess of time licking and she never drags...I usually find a little bloody spot on her blanket and then start The Search for the source...

LMAO!! It's as though you typed a transcript of my very reaction the moment I saw the photo. :jaw

 

Good to know the exact location though. If Miles has been paying too much.. uh... attention to his rear, I'll usually take a look. Problem is, I never really knew where/what I was looking for - now i do!! :lol
