Customer Question
I just did all...

I just did all this then went on to give my email address and card number and finally got frustrated because I wasn’t getting anywhere . I went to another site and here I am again

Veterinarian's Assistant: What sort of animal are we talking about?

My cat stuart

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with your cat?

He has a swollen area on the right side of his anel area close to his tail . Pretty big bump and he threw up . He’s not a happy camper . Walking around try to tell me his problem

Veterinarian's Assistant: This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your cat?

About 4 or 5 months ago we had to pull 6 teeth out ... started with hanging fangs.

I already gave you an answer but here it is again:

This sounds like an anal gland abscess and these are very very uncomfortable. They also are infected and will not heal on their own. If Stuart were my kitty, I would go to the ER tonight so he does not have to be in pain all night long......these hurt alot......

17 Mar 2018, 9:40 PM

These need to be lanced and expressed/flushed under heavy sedation and then patients have to be placed on antibiotics and strong pain medication for a couple of weeks. I hope that helps you with Stuart. Let me know however if you have additional questions or concerns as I will be back online tomorrow night. Sincerely,DRB

17 Mar 2018, 9:44 PM

I would very much appreciate it if you would rate me 5 stars for my very prompt and attentive service. And do let me know if you need any additional help! You can rate me in the top right corner of the page. Thank you very much! DRB

Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. DrB
