    This is what happens with Voitto if I give him some fruit or veggies. At one point it got so bad that he started to spit up his food too and water. It was cured with smaller portions of food, no veggies or fruits and pepsid half hour before meals and before bed time.

    I'll let you guys know when I get back… I'm seriously getting frustrated w/this
    Keep us posted. You may have to stick to his food only, and no treats at all for a bit until you figure out what's up.

    any update?

    I am going through something similar with Cheli... started giving him Benedryl at night (Monday night) and it seems to have been helping.

    OK guys, just got back from the vets… and I have some REALLY good news!!!

    Walter does NOT have Perianal Fistula, the vet believes he is STILL suffering from that one infected anal gland. She expressed it again, and now wants me to give him the anti-inflammatory Metacam. I'm supposed to keep track of the times that he has his little fits regarding his butt. Last time he was on an anti-inflammatory he had stopped that stuff, so I'm hopeful that this will work. The mucous could be the antibiotics or the weather, she wants me to keep track of that too… I'm going to give him some benadryl tonight to see if that helps any.

    Worst case scenario he would need his anal glands removed, if this becomes an issue. I'm hoping that it won't end in surgery, but I just feel we dodged a bullet w/the Fistula. Thanks so much for all the thought and prayers…

    This is wonderful news! I'm hoping this does the trick and he has no further issues! Was he okay with her expressing his glands, etc?

    WELL not really, she has to put a soft muzzle on him but at least this time he didn't head butt someone His gland was SO infected that first time, that was why it was bleeding.

    @ddnene I am so overjoyed for you getting some good news for a change. So happy for you(and Wally) I had to express my Malanois glands every other month. These Bullies are the only ones I can't do by myself!
