Has anyone had problems with their cotons anal gland?
My Coton has had issues with her anal gland since she's a puppy she was always licking there constantly we took her to the vet he gave me cream to put there and also said to give her benedyral because it could be allergies she also licked her paws constantly too where she bit and licked so bad she got an infection and had to have surgery to drain the infection and to make sure it wasn't foxtail.
She's 4yrs old now and when I took her to the vet for her annual checkup I told him she still licks there if he could please check again. He personally expressed her anal gland and found she has a very small pinhole and her glands get swollen and he said he had to line & express it carefully she was full and he said bring her back in 10days to check it which I did and she was full again and one of the glands was still swollen now I have to bring her back in two weeks to get her anal glands expressed and see if the swelling went down I guess if the glands are swollen its hard to express I don't know for sure. I have an appointment next week & hopefully she'll be ok.
The vet also said this was why when she was groomed they didn't express the glands properly and I would have to bring her in to the vet to have them express her anal glands. My poor little girl seems to be in agony constantly licking I feel so bad for her. I think taking her to vet every 2weeks is going to be costly but if I have to I will. I am wondering about surgery having these glands removed is this possible Has anyone have this problem with their coton? Please if anyone can offer suggestions it would be appreciated.
