Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Ressy. My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help.

I would continue the warm moist compresses through the day but I would not recommend squeezing the gland.

How much does she weigh? You could give aspirin for the pain and inflammation. Only give aspirin and only with food. You can give 1 low doses aspirin per 15 to 20 pounds of body weight if it does not cause her to vomit. You can do that twice daily.

Please let me know how she is doing and what other questions you have.

She weight about 47 to 50 pounds..... Right now she is just laying off ....she has not eating anything today yet... But she is drinking water
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

I am worried if she is not eating. If you look at her gums, are they pink in color or pale? Can you take her temp with a thermometer? Normal is between 101 and 102.

They look like they normally do ..... She ate yesterday bout 5 pm .... And I don't have a thermometer to take her temperature is there anything else I can do
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

If she has an infected gland, she needs antibiotics and that means having a veterinarian examine her. Until then the warm compresses and aspirin are all you can do. Try to get her to take some food and then try giving her 2 low dose aspirins or 1/2 regular aspirin for inflammation and pain.

She has an appointment tomorrow morning I was trying to get her in yesterday when I noticed it ... But they where booked ..... I was thinking that might be what's wrong .... I just finished doing some warm compression on it seems like it's help a bit .... It's just seem like Monday is to far away I just don't want anything to happen to here ...
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
she just threw up dinner from last night .....and she is back to drinking water now
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

If she is vomiting, I am even more worried about her. Is there an emergency clinic open today near you?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Do not give aspirin if she is vomiting. Keep her hydrated with liquids like water, broth and Pedialyte and continue the warm compresses until a vet can examine her.
