In Part I of What To Do When Your Dog Is Dragging His Butt, I explained that my doggie son Alvin had infected anal glands. The vet's initial solution - a round of oral antibiotics.
In Part II of What To Do When Your Dog Is Dragging His Butt, we found out that the oral antibiotics did not work, so we agreed that the vet should inject antibiotic cream DIRECTLY into Alvin's anal glands.
Two weeks later, we were in the vet's office again for a scheduled followup appointment.
Good news - infection had cleared up.
No surgery for the immediate future.
It's a "wait and see what happens" scenario.
Right now, it's a month after the last vet visit and Alvin is doing fine. No scooting across the floor on his butt.
We are continuing the pumpkin once a day in his dinner.
Here's hoping that Alvino will not have another butt exam this year!
