Two or three times a year my toy poodle gets a cyst right beside her anus. Sometimes it's on the right side, sometimes on the left. It starts out as a raised pink, rather firm spot about the size of a nickel. After two or three days it develops a tiny hole that weeps bloody fluid. She tries to lick it but can't reach it very well. I cover the couch, chairs and my bed with old sheets because of the weeping, which isn't very much, but there is no way I can stand the tiny dots of fluid that she leaves when she lies down. Also, it has a sort of infected smell about it. I have taken her to the vet who told me that it is a type of cyst that "some dogs just get", and it has to run its course, which is about a week. She heals up just as fast with or without antibiotics, although I put triple antibiotic cream on it two or three times a day. I would NOT reccommend the "lampshade" collar. I tried that once, paid seven dollars for it, and it just made things worse for the poor dog. Wearing that collar was so distressing for her that she layed around and moaned and groaned and finally started throwing up, and all that in addition to the cyst. I took it off, seven dollars wasted, and dabbed nail polish remover on the hair around the cyst. The dog wouldn't touch it. Now, it would be a good idea to take your dog to the vet in case it's something different from what my dog has. I sure wouldn't go the collar route, though.
My Dog Has A Weird Looking Bump/cyst/tumor On Her Butt. We Do Not Know What It Is And We Do Not Have The Money To Go To The Vet. Can We Remove It Ourselves And Do No Harm To Her?
Most probably there was a sore that got infection. It can be due to any insect. If it is Lipoma, soft rounded bulge, then there is no need to get worried until your pet starts feeling uncomfortable due to it. Then it requires a surgery. It can just be a cyst as well, which will grow, and rupture by its own self. Otherwise if your pet is feeling to much pain and there is no sign of its rupturing then consult a vet because this shows symptom of tumor or cancer. If it is not treated in its early stages then it can result into death as well.
Do NOT remove it yourself, you are not a vet, and the environment is not clean to not cause infection, unless the bump is causing severe pain, or she is visibly sick, as in not eating or drinking water, unable to sit or stand, for now I wouldn't worry about it. If it causes her pain call your local animal shelter, they can help you with aid to have your dogs taken care of, but unless your vet tells you specifically, you should never do anything like that to your dog, they can scare and hurt themselves and you, or an infection can set in which will be worse then the lump.
Symptoms are indicating that tit is a hollow tumor that has liquid or soft matter inside it. Normally when it gets operated and removed from the body, it does not reappear. Its symptom is, when it is touched it feels free an unattached. There are different types of cysts with varied localizations, external or internal. The external ones, when come into contact, feel free, not attached. What you can do is use antiseptic water solution and add 2 teaspoon of salt in it. Then clean it and try to keep the area dry after that.
Are you insane???? Would you try to remove a tumor like that on your child??? NO DON'T DO IT. I just took my dog into the vet because "I thought her anal gland was impacted". Needless to say, she has a tumor that was about the size of a golf ball and now is the size of an orange. It's cancer and the vet said it was inoperable due to it's location. Anyway, set up payments with your vet. Most of the time they will work with you.
Are they on either side of the anus? Could be anal sac abcesses. Has she been scooting on the floor or licking back there a lot in the past few months? If so, that would be my guess. Yeah, you're right about needing to take her to the vet. Her anal sacs might need to be expressed and possibly opened if they've abcessed.
No! Don't do any thing think of a way to earn a Little extra money so you do not harm her. The veternarian is able to work in some way to find out what it is. Believe or not your dog will be fine.
His anal sacs got full of bacteria
My 14 year old cocker spaniel has a tumor hanging below her rectum as well. It started about a year ago right when I lost my job. (Go figure!) Hers started out the size of a quarter and is now the size of a small orange. She eats plays and potties normally. My dilemma is we have quarter on Jan13,2010 to have her put to sleep. I am having second thoughts. She has quarter. With our Humane Society. I don,t know what to do. What if I don't follow through and it ruptures we don't have money for a vet. I have had her since she was 6 weeks old and this is tearing me up. Deb
