Here she has a spot not even as big as a dime by her anus. It didn't smell like Lucky, a dead fish hanging out of his butt. Here it is an anal gland. I am not a vet and I sure couldn't figure out this mystery. It was an explosion from a small spot. Last night that thing bled, so I cleaned it up and put an antibiotic cream on her. Then the vet gave her a shot and antibiotics today. Next thing we got to talking about her and I told him I thought she might have thyroid problem. Well she does, low count thyroid. Between Lucky and Lil' Lady I look like I am running a pharmacy. The vet told me she would be great after taking these pills. Well I hope so. Not a great day, and it sure was an April Fool. I never expected all of this but my gut told me to run her now to the vet. I knew it wasn't something for the emergency room, but why does these things happen at night? My inquiring mind wants to know sooner then waiting the next day.
