Acts like her rear end is hurting.

Postby gebower » Sat Nov 07, 2015 4:45 am

Help,
I have an 8 yr. spayed female Chow who has recently been turning her head side to side whining, yelping and acting like her rear end hurts. She's been to the vet and they did a full blood test on her and the only thing that turned up was a little anemia. She's been wormed too. So it can't be worms. The vet looked at the rear end and "didn't see anything wrong". This doesn't happen all the time but in sessions like 6-7 times a day now. It will last about 15 minutes. But, she'll turn her head side to side towards to back. She doesn't have any fleas, tick or anything like that. Has anyone encountered this problem with their Chow? I'm at my wit's end with this.
Thanks, Gene.

Looks like she might have a cyst or boil at the base of her tail. I"m taking her in today. Maybe they'll lance it. She's suffering with it.

It was a skin infection under her tail. She's on prednisone and antibiotic and needs to be bathed in a $27 bottle of prescription shampoo. That's it.

Glad it doesn't seem to be anything serious.
