My 9 yr old female border collie, Diamond, has had anal
My 9 yr old female border collie, Diamond, has had anal gland issues for over 4 years. She has had to have sutures placed in one to repair a rupture two years ago. The repair did not hold and she now has issues every few weeks. We've tried more dietary fiber (green beans), sits baths and monthly expression by our vet. We are now considering surgery to remove the right gland that was ruptured. There seems to be a collection of puss within this gland and the old sutures that complicate the condition. What other options do we have? What are the pros and cons of removal?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Diamond?Customer: She doesn't have any other known conditions, though she hasn't had a blood work up as yet. As with most borders, she is very athletic and an Alpha female. She doesn't tolerate other companions well. She spends most of her days with our two male dogs, another BC and a Sheepdog. She is a "ball dog". Hyper is one way to describe her.

My dog is sneezing a lot. This is new so I am assuming
My dog is sneezing a lot. This is new so I am assuming allergies. Can I give her an over the counter drug like Zyrtec and how much? She is a nineteen pound bichon. I haven't changed her food. She eats Science Diet CD for bladder stones (has for years) and is just finishing up 21 days on ketoconazole for a yeast infection. Poor thing. She was biting at a spot on her hind quarters and has created a sore spot.
