Miss Snickers update
Miss Snickers will be spending the next few days at the vet! When she was examined this morning pre-op, it was discovered that she had a great deal of nasty pus and blood near the anal gland and that was cleaned out without her being under anesthesia. Due to the massive infection found, so surgery will be performed until it clears up and disappears. Now she will be tested with dyes to find out the cause of the constant infections and discomfort and to hopefully rule out the tumor. Suspicions raised are that it could be an anal fistula that keeps bursting and so antibiotics, prednisone and tramadol will be her fate once she is home. She will also be on an iv to keep her fluids up and lots of anitibiotics to clear up the infection.
