    Default Infected anal glands and colitis flair up means POO everywhere

    My poor girl... she is having one very, very bad week.

    It all started Monday night (Tuesday morning) at around 1:30AM, as she was very restless in bed. I said to Lewis, I smell anal gland, I think she has to go out... he tells me no. About 15-20 mins later, the smell is so strong I get up and take her out anyway -- she big time. Go back in and the bedroom has a strong odor, so I turn on the light.... some stains on the comforter.

    I am having a VERY busy week at work, so Lewis has been getting home first, he gets home and poor girl is trapped in her crate that is full of as is she. Wednesday night we go through pretty much the same issue, but she can not hold her at all... dripping, running out of her.. mucus and oatmeal like consistency. Lewis stays home and takes her to see our vet Thursday morning and he says it is infected anal glands .... Thursday night is a repeat of Wednesday night, but not as bad.


    Friday we both go to work, I already know I have a 16+ hour day ahead of me and Lewis knows he will be getting home first. We left her in the living room with everything sheet covered. Well, from what he told me the sight was beyond nasty... Banks got a bath, he got a bath and when I got home the living got a full scrub down.

    I stopped to day to get her diapers, they fit, but as you guessed do not stay on, but they will do for bed time. her poor bum is so red and sore, my heart is breaking for her.

    I think her colitis is totally kicking in and she is not well at all.... Cheli will not even look at her and stay in a different room. This makes me more concerned, he keeps his back to her, which as you may know, is a sign of respecting the other dog and giving them their space. Last time Banks colitis kicked in this bad, our sweet Nitschke passed the following week..so it has been over 2 years since she was this bad.

    Her is an orange color and oatmeal like.... Joe put her on a strong antibiotic and I am giving her the Tylan powder too.

    Any ideas or suggestions as to what you think?? Of course, prayers ...PLEASE!!

    some pictures of her week---

    Poor baby. I am no help but I hope she feels better soon. I had a ridgback that had to be on Tylan powder many years ago due to explosive non stop poo. It was not fun at all.

    Oh Christine, I'm so so sorry… poor baby!!! I wish I had some advice to give you, but I don't… does something trigger this for her? Stress? I know you have been working a lot… and I'm sure being stuck inside w/the crappy weather isn't helping either. Sending you LOTS of prayers & hugs!!! Please keep us posted on Banks!!!

    I'm so sorry that Banks is not well. I feel so bad for her and her poor red bum I was wondering the same as Tracey, if some sort of stressor may have set off this colitis episode. Also, is she on some maintenance med for the colitis? I'm not familiar w/colitis and dogs but colitis itself is a very miserable health problem. I wish I could say something helpful but i got nothing. Hoping someone will come along with similar experience. Meanwhile, I'll be praying for Banks and for a healthy outcome to all this.

    Poor girl... bum rashes hurt!
    Will she let you touch her butt at all? If so, can you put some Desitin on it?

    yes, it is normally stress related, but nothing i can think of should be bothering her. Only thing comes to mind asnd i think Tracey stated it --- all this freakin snow, she can not be outside as much as she likes to be. it is so icy they can barely walk in the yard and now we are going to be getting another foot tomorrow into Monday.

    Yes, that is what I am putting on it along with an antibiotic powder the vet gave us. her bum is SO RAW it almost looks like blood. i just sent the pic in a text to our vet... she what he says. my poor bitchy girl is not doing good

    OMG poooor Banks!!! I hope you can get her poo firm again, and fast!!!!

    After yunas obstruction this is exactly what her little bottom looked like, but also sooooo swollen it was sagging!

    Due to the laxatives we gave her trying to get her to poop prior to the surgery is what caused the acidic poo.

    I tried everything, but in the end what worked best was straight gold bond powder after each of the several antibacterial soap washes a day.

    Oh dang Christine, that looks painful. Poor Banks. I haven't dealt with an anal gland infection. There's some stuff on it in the article I did though, just can't recall what it says at the moment. The snow could be causing the stress too. Sally refuses to go do her business in the backyard if it's snowing so I have to take her out to the front yard and she goes right away. I don't know what the reasoning is but she does get stressed when it's snowing. Hope Banks' bum gets better soon.

    Oh, did the vet say anything about her gland rupturing? Or is that even an issue right now?

    yes, he told us if it is not better after a week on the antibiotic, he wants he back in to inject antibiotic directly into the glands as he said they could potentially rupture!
