Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. You're thriugh to Dr Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you shortly.
Sorry to hear of this problem with your dog. The squatting to wee frequently to me is suggestive of cystotis/urinary tract infection. This can occurring due to the excess licking of the genitals when in season. She will need a veterinary examination and urine analysis to confirm and most likely a course of antibiotics.
I'm afraid I cannot see the lump clearly in that photo but the fishy smelly certainly suggests an anal gland problem, swelling in that area could suggest an abscess is developing. This certainly does need to be checked by your vet.
I'm not sure why your vet suggested to Just leave her, I would recommend getting her seen tomorrow or even this evening if possible.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
Thanks, ***** ***** less like an anal gland abscess and more like a rectal polyp or other growth from the rectal wall
OK that's good to know
