Ruptured Anal Gland

Every so often, Romulus gets a clogged anal gland which ruptures. Wednesday was the latest. We cleaned him up, gave him a 30C Hepar sulpher and thought we'd keep an eye on it.

Thursday comes and as Lisa is heading out the door to school, Romulus throws up his entire breakfast. Now it's time for a vet trip.

Dr. Marta Nobrega at Mercy Vet got to clean out Rom's anal glands; a thick muddy paste rather came out. We're supposed to get him re-checked on Monday to make sure things are healing well. In the future, we get to regularly irrigate and clean his anal glands to prevent this from reoccuring.
