Bum Wibble

Sol's got a minor bulge or swelling which has developed very slowly - almost imperceptibly - over the last 6 weeks. Nobody but Mrs Paranoid would even have noticed it. His Dad (official owner) still can't see it and neither can anyone else. I just know instinctively that something isn't right so I've booked him for a vet visit on Monday evening. I don't think it's an emergency or I'd have whipped him down to Chine House Veterinary Hospital immediately I noticed it. Having said that, I'm glad that I could get an appointment with my preferred vet on Monday rather than having to wait until Thursday for example. Not an emergency in my opinion but something that needs looking at sooner rather than later.

 

Sorry to be graphic (I have photos, of course :wacko: ) but it's a slight "bagginess" of the flesh to the right of his rectum. I experienced this with my Weimaraner and it was found to be caused by an abscess on his prostate.

 

Sol's not having any "toilet" trouble; his stools are regular and uniform, bladder function normal. No change in diet or digestion.

 

If anyone has any clues that would be great. If not, could you send some "nothing nasty just a small but deep thorn in yer ginga bum" thoughts for Sol please? Reiki for both Sol's bottom and my mental state would be very much appreciated :flowers:

 

I appreciate that I come over as very shallow and jokey on The Refuge but seriously, I am more profound than that and love Sol more dearly than I could ever say.

You do not come across as shallow you twerp but as a lufferly caring lady, maybe a tad eccentric but I for one luffs you for it :GroupHug:

Sending good thoughts to Sols bum, and stop staring at his bum thoughts to Alison.

 

Your love for him shines through in every post you write. Its a joy to see.

You must be beside yourself with worry - I hope it's just a skin irritation due to the weather or something naff and insignificant, Sol stop scaring your Mum :wub:

Alison, have been sending Reiki for Sol as requested but hadn't seen this thread till now, sorry :flowers:

 

I don't think any regular poster on the Refuge could doubt your love for Sol :GroupHug:

Thanks to everyone for their kind and healing thoughts - they've helped enormously and I'm extremely grateful :flowers:

 

Sol's diagnosis is a perineal hernia, so whilst he's still got to have surgery it could have been for something so much more serious. I've got to ring tomorrow to book him in on a date some time this month when the rectal surgeon is free.

 

I'm every vet's nightmare in terms of wanting to know everything so if anyone would like to know the latest in terms of research etc. on bum bulges, I'm your woman!

Just seen this - so glad that despite him needing surgery it's nothing too serious.

 

:GroupHug: for the most dashing 'Fugee dog and his very caring mum
