|We were on vacation in Tennessee, when we noticed that harley's had a small, perfectly round puncture by her booty**. I was panicked because it was on new years in 1 am when we noticed it! (talk about perfect timing, right?)
We called the vet and she said that it sounded like and it could be the anal gland. Well.. we found an emergency clinic that was open.. an hour away from our cabin.. and took the drive.
She was diagnosed with a ruptured anal gland! I had completely no idea or experience with this sort of thing. The vet "expressed" it, cleaned it out, gave her a shot of antibiotics followed with oral antibiotics for the next week.
She is going in for her follow up visit with our regular vet tomorrow morning. We just returned home last night.
What am i expecting with this for the future?
Has anyone ever had this happen!!!!!
Sure was scary not knowing what to do or where to go when she had a hole in her body!!!!!
