My german shepherd was looking sad and sniffing himself more than usual, so I took him to the vet. The vet said that it was a anal sac infection common to the breed, and extracted quite a bit black pus from the anus. I was told to give him antibiotics over the next few weeks and monitor feces to see if everything returns to normal.
My question is, do any of you have any information/experience on this? I was looking at online sources, but I think other dog owners would provide better answers. I'm just worried that the infection won't go away so easily, so I'm just not sure about the prognosis or better treatment. I hope everything will return to normal... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
