All done,glands done and claw done,hes back in 8 days.Hopefully the op on glands means we wont have any more probs with infections,not sure what the success rate is on that proceedure.Perhaps someone will tell me.Next on the list is his private parts.

20th January 2009, 04:15 PM
Which glands were taken out Justine?

20th January 2009, 04:21 PM
Pauline,its his bottom glands.He keeps getting infections even though they are squeezed reg.I hope this will stop all the infections.Do you know.

20th January 2009, 04:22 PM
Oh silly me, of course, his anal glands. I have no idea, Dylan's are fine, he doesn't need them expressed either.

20th January 2009, 04:43 PM
Aww bless,its was my fault i didnt write properly.Alfs had to be done every 6 weeks,although he never had any infections.Archie seems to suffer with it more.

20th January 2009, 07:39 PM
Glad it all went well.

20th January 2009, 11:00 PM
I have had 2 Cavaliers that had their anal glands removed. Both were absolutely fine afterwards. The only problem I encountered with one of them was, because of the constant bottom scooting she then suffered the itch, scratch, itch syndrome which was successfully cured with a steroid cream rubbed onto her bottom twice daily:o
Have to say both these dogs had their anal glands removed several years
ago in the early 80's and since then touch wood have not had the same problems. Hope all goes well with post op care.

How is Archie now Justine?

How is Archie doing?

20th January 2009, 11:20 PM
Just thinking about Archie. Wondering how he is doing. My grandaughter who is 15 months old and lives 2800 miles from us was here for 8 days--they left this past sunday. Anyways, our new addition--Bentley-kept taking her dang paci and running outside with it--lol. He loved that thing. She also had this small bear blanket and son of a gun he kept taking that too and I was so afraid he was going to chew it up. Geesh. Anyways, hubby is out now getting a paci for him to see if we can get a picture of him. lol. He probably won't want it now that he can have it. lol. Keep us posed how Archie is doing.

Rough nite,he woke me barking loudly,opened the cage he shot out abd ran to the back door,let him out and he got sick and tried to go to poos.Clever boy.So when he settled i gave him a pain killer.He went to sleep after that.hes fine this morning.It will take a couple of days to settle.

21st January 2009, 09:53 AM

Hope he feels better soon! Give him a big hug from us :)

21st January 2009, 10:59 AM
Aww thanks.How clever was he.He is a barker anyway.hes barking at something now.Ella was outside with him the other day and he started growling and barking,so i looked outside and the milkman had got out of the van and was approaching her,he didnt like that.She was soooo pleased becos he was looking out for her.

21st January 2009, 12:10 PM
Ahh bless him - hope he's feeling better very soon xxx

21st January 2009, 03:27 PM
Poor little man..hope he's feeling his old self very soon.

21st January 2009, 09:38 PM
Hes seems ok tonite.I have put some sudacream on his botty.

21st January 2009, 11:39 PM
Sudocrem is wonderful stuff. I had a piercing that was still sore 2 years later! A nurse told me to use zinc and vitamin E. I remembered Sudocrem had Zinc in it, I used it, and two days later it was all healed.

Poor little guy. I hope he feels much better soon!
