Hi there, I went to pick her up and she let out a little cry and when I looked I noticed this lump. I left it alone and by the morning it looked as if it was a pimple that popped, still a hard mass though. It did not effect her going to the bathroom or her appetite just sore to the touch. It seems it is going down now. Is it possible for dogs to get boils? Any advice would be great. Thanks
Your dogs anal glands are impacted more than likely. VERY Very painful. They can rupture, possibly have already. It will need to be seen by a vet to fix it. Probably needing surgery. This could all have been avoided if you had checked the dogs glands monthly to see if they are overly full. They can be expressed by a vet or groomer. Please get your dog to a vet a.s.a.p.
Whoever said you can't buy happiness, must have never owned a dog!!!!!!!!!!!
