Thumbs up

Oh mann... I got home from work today and Kodie wasnt acting normal. He didnt want to play like usualy instead he was panting, shaking, walking around in his pen like he couldnt get comfortable to sit anywhere, and then he kept acting like he was stretching from a nap (arching his back and butt up in the air and lowering his front paws).... but i knew this is something weird because he normally stretches with more force then what he was doing. It seemed like he just wanted to have his butt in the air because something hurt or was making him uncomfortable. Anyway... I took him to the emergency vet because he didnt want to play or even eat a GREENIE! Thats how I KNEW something HAS to be up! HE LOVES GREENIES! Anyway.. the Vet said he thinks its his anal sacs. He said they were abnormal and he clean them up. The vet then sent us home and told me to watch kodie for about 2hrs to see if he was doing better. When we got home Kodie went pee, I fed him some rice (he loves it), and now hes sleeping comfortably.

I know I have heard some people talking about anal sacs on here but is this what happens when they are full? Anyone have any info.

If Kodie wasnt doing better by now the Vet said he would then treat Kodie for an upset stomach type of thing.

Mann.... I'm tired myself.... TOO MUCH STRESS! -_-

Poor Kodie! I hope that is all is was!!!
Did he have any signs like scooting/licking before today?
Seems weird that it would get that bad all of the sudden!
Lots of hugs and kisses to him!

I never noticed any signs of a problem like that... he wasnt even doing those things tonight while he was panting. Thats why I'm sooo puzzled how this could be anal sacs?

Oh poor Kodie!! Its so scary when something dosnt seem right with them, i can only imagin with Kodie being so small how much more stressful it is. Is he seeming more normal yet? At least an anal sac proublem isnt something to serious (right?), although it sounds really gross.

Oh no poor Kodie. hopefully thats all it is. It does seem strange that it came on so suddenly. I'm sure he is happy to be home and sleeping. Try another greenie when he gets up

Love to the tiny baby from Phoebe

Poor little guy. You didn't notice him scooting or dragging his butt before this? I guess our Kode man didn't want to be rude. We're adding him to our prayers tonight.

I also see no symptoms! I wonder if the little ones are more prone to anal sac issues. Hopefully, someone can jump in and help!
