Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Do you have pictures of the cyst?
2) When did it appear?
3) Has your vet taken a biopsy of the area?
4) Is the stool at all soft?
5) Is the cyst itself open and bleeding?
6) When was the last time that his anal glands were expressed professionally?
