I'm trying to find out what's wrong with my maltese.
It may be an anal gland problem but I am not sure.
I just noticed this today.

What should I do for my little buddy?

Here are 3 pics:

First, welcome to the forum. Second, the links do not work. Third, have you seen a vet yet?

Here are the correct links

I did not see a vet yet.

It may take the pics a minute to load.

I would make anappointment to see a vet tomorrow morning. That has got to be super painful and uncomfortable for your little one.

That looks rather painful. I would definitely see a vet. Poor little baby. :angel:

Was it swollen before? It looks terrible! Definitely head to a vet before it gets infected (more).

It was an infected anal gland. The vet squeezed it out and gave me some oral anti biotics for him. I have to go back in 2 days for a check up.
