Does anyone have any experience with Perianal fistulas in dogs?
Zeus went to the vet on Monday last week and this is what he appears to have.It's still at the very early stage and more like little ulcers on the outside of his bum.
Nothing was detected inside.
Supposedly it occurs in German Shepherds a bit. I think it has something to do with their bushy tail and how they carry it low.
Zeus's tail isn't overly bushy but it is thick and he does carry it low a lot.
What worries me is the cost of the medication and the fact that there is no guarantee it will work and he may be on it for the rest of his life. He's only just turned 3!
My vet has never administered it for a dog Zeus's size. She said she thinks the last dog she got it for was about 30 kilo's or so and the tablets were about $20 a day! Zeus is 70 kilo's.
The medication has to come from a compounding pharmacy which will be on the mainland as there mustn't be any here in Tassie.
This will get very expensive very quickly so was just wondering if anyone has come across this before or new where to get the medication cheaper from?
If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them. ~Phil Pastoret
