Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has the sore been there for? Are you able to take a picture of the area?

Okay I got the picture. It looks like she has an infected and impacted anal gland. If that is the the case the warm compress will help some but you may need antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory as well if it does not continue to improve because it could rupture

he keeps licking it. that has me concerned. what can I do? it's thanksgiving the vet it closed until monday
Dog Specialist: Dwight Alleyne ,
 replied 8 months ago

I would continue with the warm compresses at least twice daily to see if it continues to help. You can also give him a benadryl to see if it can alleviate the urge lick some based on her weight. I would definitely put a cone on her if you have one to prevent her from licking at it because she is making it more irritated by doing so.
