View Full Version : anal gland abscess

29th August 2009, 03:13 PM
my poor little frida seems to be the one who gets it all......
I had to take her to the vet first thing yesterday morning becuase of a large abscess in the right side anal gland.
thursday when i lifted her from the car (with a hand under her bottom) she made a small whimper. which is her gentle way of telling me: 'please don't touch me there, this is a problem for me'. i felt for enlarged glands, but found nothing, so i thought it was due to her problem of not having her right side femoral head.

yesterday morning she came to the bathroom while i was showering. i knew right away that something must be really wrong then. looking at her properly i could see the pain in her eyes, they were completely black, big, enlarged pupils, poor thing. i quickly found the abscess, the size of a pigeon's egg.

the op. went well, i picked her up yesterday afternoon, fit as a fiddle. today we roamed throught the fields, frida running at full speed.

we were supposed to go to germany today, but i'd rather let her rest a day after the anaestetic and take the long (6-7 hours) trip tomorrow.

i am so pleased that my little darling is well again!
