Well yesterday i found a bubble like ball on deanos bum, he's been acting strange all week being very quiet so when i noticed it i went straight to my mum and told her and she said right we'll go to the vets. So i was holding him as we walked to the car and...it burst....on me! So i was stood there in my white blouse for school, kinda with this look on my face --> :? so i changed out of my browny covered shirt and then finally got to the vets. My mum thought it was an absess. So we sat in the vets for 3 hours and finally got in and he did agree it was an absess on his anal glands and he is being treated by antibiotics and if that does help, then steroids then if that does help the operation (if it recurs). I held deano as he checked out with his back end and i have never ever heard a dog cry like that before. I hated seeing him such agony! he was screaming! For a little dog i couldnt believe how loud he was! He's a bit quiet now and cant really sit on his bum but we are going to let him soak in a warm bath in the morning to sooth and clean it. He had two injections, an antibiotic needle and a steriods one. he's sleeping right now but he will never like the vets again!
