Daisy has not been in good form for the last two days.She seems a bit stiff on her hind legs and very depressed.Initially I thought it was part of going into heat as she's due any day now.
However she won't let me touch her hindqurters and seemed very distressed when she was being washed yesterday.She's constantly licking the base of her tail forcefully and her right hindquarters obsessively and cries a bit.
Could it be an anal gland problem? She's finished a course of antibiotics about a week ago for a skin infection so I hate the idea of her taking another course.There's no evidence that she's actually gone into heat as yet.
Hubby phoned the vet last night and he didn't seem unduly concerned and gave us an appointment for two o clock this afternoon.
(Rural vets don't seem too put out by a dog being in pain do they?).
And then to top it all I had to take my son to the GP at 9.30 last night with bronchitis so between the pair of them I'll be broke and emotionally worn out.
Question really could this be a gland problem?.. or a yeast infection after antibiotics? I guess I'll need to keep her crated at vets in case she goes into heat and causes a riot in the waiting room.
