It's hard to tell from the pictures if you're seeing tissue from a ruptured anal gland that is present on the outside of the body or if this is a growth that is present on the anal tissue. I am tending toward the latter. Until your companion can be examined, you can keep this area clean with a mild soap and water used 2x daily and then apply a thin amount of neosporin. I would certainly have it examined to determine if the tissue needs to be removed as it appears inflamed in its current condition. If you do choose to have it removed after your vet's recommendation, I would also urge you to have a histopathology performed to determine what the growth is and what needs to be done, if any treatment is indicated.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
