Anal gland abscess

It’s been awhile since I’ve been on this forum! My poor Bert had his first health issue since being with us. Almost 4 years now since we adopted him.

My husband noticed him acting a bit strange when he let him out to the bathroom before he left for work. I didn’t think much of it, but as the day went on he acted a little weirder. Rubbing his butt on the ground and whining. I looked and it was red, but I noticed he also had some diarrhea, so I chalked it up to that. The next morning though it wasn’t any better, so I made an appt at the vet.

Took him in and found out he had an anal gland abscess. They sedated him, drained it and gave him pain medicine and antibiotics. Thankfully it wasn’t so bad that they needed to do surgery.

I had no idea such a thing could happen! He was really a sad sight after the procedure. He’s always such a happy boy, so it was tough to see him that way.

Thankfully he is back to his normal self two weeks later, and no longer wearing the cone of shame. Although I did splurge and got him a soft cone, so much better!

Anyone ever go through this, any tips on keeping it from happening again?

Have him expressed every few months and that should prevent any future issues. Ecko loves rolling around on his tater so his get done every couple of months. His are also hardening and thick so the vet herself usually ends up doing them.

Hey HeatherSen, been awhile. Glad to hear Berts better now and things are behind him, so to speak.
My girl Athena has to have her anal gland expressed on a somewhat regular basis. When she starts doing the “butt scoot boogie” I know it’s time.
