Shadow, my pitbull mix, has an infeceted scent gland that is causing her pain and discomfort.
She has had this condition about 3-4 times through out her her life and it usually clears up in a 2-3 weeks. This is the second bout in the last 6 months and I am afraid it is going to get worse before it gets better.
I think we need a course of antibiotics but I can't afford a visit to the vet.
Shadow is a healthy 40lb. pitbull/lab mix. She will be 14 years old in May but looks and acts like a youngster. She is lean and in good health. She gets regular excersize and a lot of love.
Her appetite is good. Her eyes are clear. No skin problems either. She looks and acts healthy. We use Program for flea control. So, she hasn't had a flea in years. She just has this problem that is driving her kind of nuts.
Can you help me?
Only your veterinarian can prescribe antibiotics. Maybe you can talk to your vet about having the anal glands removed so this does not happen again. In the long run it will save you $$. vetcare
