Hi,

My name is***** and I can help you this evening. I am sorry to hear that Pucci is having swelling around his anus. Can you take a picture and attach it to this conversation? It will really help me get a clearer picture of what is going on.

I am wondering about a ruptured anal gland abscess or possibly a mass in the perineum (tissue around the anus).
