Poor Dallas has a very swollen anus. I noticed it was very large when I visited him twice at the shelter before adoption. On the way home from the shelter, Dallas was crying and licking his behind. I stopped and took him for a long walk. He strained and strained to pooh and release the fluids.
Dallas was also neutered yesterday.
My guess is knowing how clean Basenjis are that Dallas did not pooh in his cage/crate at the shelter. Every time I visited him, he'd pooh enough for four dogs! Could not going regularly have caused this condition?
Dallas will see the vet on Monday. In the meantime, I want him comfortable.
I cooked fresh pumpkin this week and gave him about 1/8th of a cup in his food. Also, I washed his butt with warm water and ACV.
What do y'all think?
