Yesterday morning, Joey was struggling to walk. His back was hunched over and he was obviously in pain. Since Joey is a 10 year old Labrador/Great Pyrenees mix I was greatly concerned.
I took Joey to the veterinarian. They did x-rays and gave him a full physical, but couldn’t find anything wrong. The doctor decided to check Joey’s anal glands. He wasn’t dragging his butt on the ground, so it wasn’t the first thing that came to mind.
She discovered Joey’s anal glands are infected. All he needs is some antibiotics and he will be fine. The Thaler family let out a sigh of relief. We all love that old dog.
