    Unhappy Infected Anal Glands

    I just returned from the vet hospital. Cosette's anal glands were very infected and bleeding. Her bottom looked pinker than usual this morning, by this afternoon it was bulging and by evening bleeding.
    The vet drained them. She is on antibiotics and needs 4 warm compresses per day. She also has yeast infections in both ears and has drops for that. Also on pain meds.
    I feel silly because I give her a once over everyday and did not see anything unusual till today. Just when I thought I was getting the hang of things.... Poor baby

    Poor girl, I hope she will be feeling better soon! Don't feel silly, things like this happen. One of my EBs had an ear infection last spring even though I clean them once a week, I guess I wasn't cleaning them as well as I should have. But he was fine after a week with the drops! Feel better, Cosette!!

    Re: Infected Anal Glands

    Thank you, David. It's like being a first time mom all over again!

    Today was another adventure. In addition to the gland infection, Cosette had an ear infection as well so the vet put her on ear drops Wednesday. Well today she could not hear me at all. I brought her back and she may have had a reaction to the drops (otomax). She had a lot of fluid in both ears so the vet cleaned them along with her sore bum.
    Hearing is much better, no more ear drops.

    Happy Frenchie, happy mom!

    Re: Infected Anal Glands

    Cosette's ears have worsened. Last week I took her to emergency care ; they gave her gentamicin drops which she took for two days and caused fluid and (hopefully) temporary hearing loss. Today I took her to her own vet to be checked and her ears are still inflamed with fluid. The vet said the reaction to the drops does not happen often. So Cosette received a cortisone injection, more oral meds and new drops that won't hurt her ears. We will know in two weeks if her hearing improves. Poor baby.
