gland recheck

Jersey had a re-check of his anal glands (aka- his butthole) today, and I am happy to report that things are healing well.

Since the gland ruptured yesterday, a lot of the swelling has gone down and a lot of the infection has come out on it’s own. Our vet doesn’t think that any further intervention on our part (other than keeping the area clean, and finishing this round of antibiotics) should be necessary. Jersey should be able to heal up on his own.

We have an appointment a week from today just to check it again before he’s been given a clean bill of health. Other than that, we should be a-okay.

I’ll tell ya, owning a french bulldog is pretty glamorous.

  1. It breaks my heart reading posts where you think you’ve done a bad job when something slips your mind or you get distracted with doggy surgery. You are a fantastic dog mom! Oslo and Jersey are the luckiest boys in the world to have you. So glad to hear that both of your boys are doing well. You take such good care of them!
