Hello. My bullie is experiencing a problem I've never seen. He's under a vet's care, taking high potency antibiotics, but they don't seem to be helping. Let me background you: he had surgery on his tail to remove bones that were growing inward and causing him pain. Basically, a tail amputation. This was about two and a half months ago. The surgery has NOT healed and continues to ooze foul-smelling blood and pus.
The infection has now spread into one of his anal glands, which is also oozing the same matter. Yesterday, I noticed a swelling just above the anal sac drainage site, and now the swollen area has developed its own aperture, and it's also draining!
My bully is presently wearing Depends around the house to keep this mess from the carpets, walls and furniture.
The antibiotic he is on is Zeniquin 100mg. He was given a 10 day supply and is now down to four remaining. They have not seemed to help. Has anyone else had anything similar happen to their bullies? Is anal sac removal an option? I'm afraid this infection could become life-threatening to him, although he seems comfortable, eats well and willingly plays...but I try to keep that to a minimum since it causes that stuff to ooze from his tail and the apertures on his rump. Thanks for reading!
