Customer Question
She is a14 years...

She is a14 years old 6 lb Yorkie, She has for the past few day a loose bowl movement. I notices 2 lumps on either side of her anus. They are very soft. She does not seem in any pain when I feel them. She lost her mother and sister within a month of each other in November. She is always sad. Thinking of getting her a companion.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name and age?

14 years old Punim

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

No. She was just there last month to have her teeth cleaned. Was on antibiotic ending a few days ago.

Is she still eating and drinking normally?

Is she doing any straining to pass her stool?

Is she scooting her hindend or licking under her tail?
