Hi Leo is being treated for an infected anal gland at the moment, he's on antibiotics but last night he was chewing at his backside so hard he made it bleed. I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on how to soothe him. I put him in the bath today and gently washed his rear end which has helped alittle, although he wasnt very happy with me! How long will the pain last? I have to take him back to the vet on friday for a check up.....I presume she'll try and empty them then when the infections cleared.
I was just hoping someone could tell me how to make it easier for him.....he's going through a lot at the moment what with one thing and another.
