A Rescued Dog, Boom Boom Bobby

A Rescued Dog, Boom Boom Bobby

Someone had started willy-nilly hacking the matts off along his back and head, and the rescued dog looked awful, as well as still having heavy, clumpy matts in the usual problematic places – under his ears, armpits, inner thighs and round the back end. He was happy to get out of the cage, had lots of energy, loved running up and down and, though he didn’t really mind me working around his ears and on his belly, was not amused at all when it came to his rear end.

Treatment of Canine Perianal Fistulas, or Infected Anal Glands

Treatment of Canine Perianal Fistulas, or Infected Anal Glands

According to the American College of Veterinarian Surgeons (ACVS), perianal fistulas are tube-like formations inside the dog’s skin around the anal glands. They appear as two oozing pin-points, one on each side of the dog’s rectum. The best that can be said about it is a reoccurring chronic condition that releases a thickened liquid that is foul, putrid, odorous, ulcerating, described as sinus tracts in the perianal tissues with an unknown cause. Unfortunately, the breed of dog that is the most susceptible is the German Shepherd, even though other purebred or mixed breed dogs can also develop it, such as Setters or Retrievers.

A Dog Story: Aurora, Gone the Next Day ….

A Dog Story: Aurora, Gone the Next Day ….

They said she was Twilight’s mother, and there was no doubt they were related because they both had a distinctive little patch of black round by the rump which stood out on Twilight’s dark grey and Aurora’s paler greyish white. She was certainly too big for the ‘little dog’ section and had been put in with a companion in a larger cage. At first she looked at me with dull eyes, and didn’t show much interest in coming outside at all, so I had to pull at her. Once out, everything frightened her, even the smallest of unexpected movements. I shuddered to think what she must have been through, and wondered how long it would take to gain her trust.
