Poorly Brax

Bracken is having a bad week. She seemed to be scooting on her bottom more than normal and appearing constipated but on investigation, we found that she had an abscess on her anal gland. Poor Brax! She had to stay at the vets yesterday to have it cleaned out and drained properly. The abscess was huge, about the size of a 50p and the vet has stitched one side and left the other side open to drain. Brax is on loads of drug and is very cross about having to wear a buster collar and a purple bandage on her tail! The vet was very kind and saved as much butt hair as possible! Unfortunately though she is on cage rest for three days and then not allowed to do much, certainly no agility for 2 weeks :(

  1. Poor Brax!!!! Ugghh...we see this alot through the veterinary ER where I work; it makes me so sad because the poor dogs are clearly in pain! I hope she feels better soon, the meds do their jobs and she has no more trouble!!

    take care and sheltie hugs!
