    Firstly the latest news - after sleeping all afternoon, Rupert decided at 7pm that it was teatime - having missed breakfast this morning, he was very hungry ...so much for the vets always telling you that they probably won't eat - Rupert didn't hear that bit!! He demolished a bowl of soaked kibble mixed with a little Chappie {not something I usually give them, it was a special treat} - and was looking for more. Obviously feeling better then icon_banana


    Jen, the syrinxes can cause nerve damage, hence the dogs experiencing strange sensations which makes them lick their paws etc.

    My understanding is that the sphincter muscle nerves could be affected...but as Karlin says, it could just be his age.


    Looking for a friend - sorry to hear about your son. At present, Rupert is on antibiotics and I will bathe him with salt water from tomorrow - he is too sore today. I guess that if it didn't clear up, circumcision would be an option for dogs too?


    By the way, entire boy dogs can produce a discharge which looks remarkably like pus - speaking from personal experience here, once frantically 'phoned the vet when Rupert was young to be told not to worry, it was normal




    "Don't forget the tussy peg fairy, how many biscuits is that he is due?"

    Fanx Anti Roof, Mommy din't tel me bout fairis - she oues me FIVE bixits. XXX

    Thanks for the suggestion about the belly band - I managed to find one on E-bay, and use it with a Tena lady pad cut in half - it's very good. I'm hoping TRPD {see my siggie} may produce some fleece ones in the future, will keep you posted. Rupert sleeps with us, so it's more difficult - I guess this is one time when you'd like them to be sleeping in a crate!

    Sorry to hear about Pepys and Josh...and poor TeddyEdward - that must have been just awful.

    They always feel better with some food down them don't they?
    Wow, 5 tussy pegs out, enjoy those biscuits Rupert!!

    In the old days when I worked in kennels we used to use stuff for mastitis in cows for the balanitis. It was in a plastic syringe and just as the farmers had to push it up the teat we had to push it inside the sheath .......... tricky

    Glad he is back to normal Nicki,
    Warm wishes,
    Ruth

    Thanks Ruth - interesting you mention about the cows - the vet mentioned that too!!

    I think if the anitbiotics don't work, we may have to look at something like that - EEK!

    Great news that Rupert has had some grub and is feeling a little bit better now. icon_banana

    Hope the anti-biotics kick in real soon. icon_yikes I would not fancy having to do the procedure involved with the cows!
