|Harley's right anal gland ruptured and it was VERY scary. I was not familiar with anything of the sort happening, so imagine my surprise to see a perfectly round hole through her little body!!!
My vet had her on antibiotics for a while and we are still actually having problems with hers leaking.. i'm waiting on a call from the vet for tomorrow morning.( since they take fridays off!)
Anyways, i would definitely take care of it before you have to deal with any rupturing because its rather gross!!!
As far as pain, my vet had her on pain medicine for several days.
She had the other gland expressed, and my vet wants us to keep up every month with visits to the vet to see how fast they are filling up and how soon they need to be expressed and so on and go from there.
