both of my dogs went to the vet today. they had their anal glands expressed. they seem to be uncomfortable, jumpy & itchy. i have used a facecloth with warm water & soap on that area. put gold bond antibotic ointment on them and did give one of my dogs a half of rimadyl twice today. that rx exp. date was for 12/26/00. is that alright? how can i get him to relax? also the vet trimmed the hair there too on that dog.
the other dog is resting okay right now, so i think she is okay. what can i do if tonight if he still uncomfortable? i'll call vet tomorrow if he isn't better.
i'm just a little worried.
Just leave the area alone. You are probably causing more of a problem, although you do not mean too. It is always dangerous to give a pet expired medication. Go back to the vet it the area is still irritated. vetcare
