6 week pup with swollen anus
Has a red anal area, like a cherry tomato, seems like it's about to fall out.
What can I do to help her get better?
If she's been constipated it could have caused this problem, or there may be something else going on.
I'm afraid I can't help as she needs to be examined by your veterinarian to find out if she needs any treatment.
Meanwhile you could try a little Vaseline, or diaper rash cream to help soothe the soreness, but she needs a vet appointment.
If constipation is a problem, check out my A Constipated Puppy page to learn how to help treat (and prevent) constipation in pups and dogs.
Best of luck, hope she's doing much better soon.
