I took both pugs to the new vet on Tuesday. Daisy was having a re-check of her anal glands. I finally left our other vet's because they weren't doing anything about her ongoing infection except giving her more and more meds. This new doc, flushed her glands out and said if the problem persists, we're going to look into surgery. He's been doing the surgery for 13 years and has never had a problem (the big complication from anal gland surgery gone wrong is fecal incontinence. Yeah. Yuck.)
I really like the new guy. He actually listens and takes his time. At the old vet, I always felt so rushed. Plus there was always this huge wait to check out. The final straw came when I took Pearl about a month ago for her allergies and only learned at check out after waiting half an hour to pay that the vet had given us 5 medications and only told me about 1.
What I like about the new vet too is they have someone come in after you've spoken to the doctor and go over every charge and every procedure, recommendation, etc. Ahhh, very nice.
Daisy was free and clear this last recheck - meaning for the first time in MONTHS she didn't have any fluid in her glands. So all fingers and paws crossed, let's hope this keeps up.
And because I don't have any pictures of Daisy and Pearl having their anal glands expressed (hee), here are a couple from the other day. It's the same bed and same stuffie (a little spider) a few hours apart.
