Not at all she want trembling then they expressed her anal glands I did not administer the pain meds because I read the side affects may have been frequent urination and we had record col here in Houston so my dog wasn't walking in that weather
Dog Specialist: Ann M., Dog Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

I am having a hard time following here... I am going to "opt out" and let another vet try to assist you better. Do not reply, just wait for another vet to assist.

Did I understand correctly that you've only administered the antibiotic thus far and not the pain medication?

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

Is she eating and drinking well?

Can you share a picture of the acne you're seeing?
