Just rushed my Cav Lilly to the Emergency vet (Atlantic Vet on Vets Hwy) because a golf ball size abscess showed up out of nowhere over night. En route it burst. Luckily she was wrapped in a towel. The vet knows her because we have had to bring her there before said it was an abscess involving her anal gland & although they will do everything they can, they cannot guarantee it wont come back. Antibiotics, flush & then stitches. Is this common in Cavs? Has anyone had a similar situation (anal gland or abscess' or both)? I will say this, right out of the gate, they asked if she has had seizures.
