PUG - Hemorrhoid?
I noticed today that there is a strange looking thing sticking out of my pug's rectum. It almost looks like a swollen cyst.
Please see picture. I am wondering if it's a hemorrhoid or something else.
Also, if this is something I can fix myself or if I need to go to the vet.
It's most likely a hemorrhoid, small breed pups and dogs tend to get constipated more easily than the larger breeds, and the straining involved in passing a bowel movement can cause hemorrhoids.
It's best not to mess with this sort of problem yourself, I'd recommend taking your pup to the vet and having him examine him/her.
That way you can be sure you have an accurate diagnosis and if there is any treatment necessary then you can get it taken care of.
Meanwhile try to prevent your pup from getting constipated as this will make the situation worse. Check out my A Constipated Puppy page for tips and advice.
Best of luck with your pup, hope he's back to normal soon.
