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 a picture of the area the bubble? 2) Did this appear after the seizure? 3) How many seizures has he had during this lifetime? How frequently? Is he receiving medication for them?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He had one or two when he was younger but they stopped he is a corgi/terrier mix. I never seen the bubble until now so I don't know since when. He does not receive medication

At 10-12 years of age, we must always be worried that cancer could be the cause of any bumps that appear in the rectal/anal tissue. As well, there could be some involvement with the anal glands causing them to appear enlarged. Perhaps the easiest approach here will be to schedule an exam with your vet and have them look at the tissue. Often a biopsy must be taken to determine if the tissue is malignant or not and to determine if anything must be done medically to intervene with its presence. Rectal masses: gland tumors: gland tumors: of the rectum and anus: this tissue is not interfering with him being able to defecate, you likely don't need to rush in to see your vet but I would try to have an exam performed with in the next few days to be sure of what is causing this. If you see an increase in the size of the tissue that's visible, your pet begins scooting or otherwise showing signs of being bothered I would expedite the visit. Did my response help to answer all of the questions that you had regarding your companion? If you have other questions, please reply and I’ll help you further.Once you're satisfied with our dialogue, please take the time to use the star rating system at the top of the page to leave a rating for me.
