It’s September and it’s been two months since I’ve been to the Dr’s office. I feel a bit better but not at the top of my game..sigh.
I have what is called Perianal Fistulas:
” Perianal refers to the area immediately surrounding the anus or termination of the digestive tract. A fistula is an abnormal connection that forms between two tissues, organs, or vessels that normally do not connect. In affected dogs, the condition is usually associated with an infection in the perianal region, and there are usually one or more draining tracts present”.

I’m on medicine now, everyday I have to take an antibiotic plus another one that’s really yucky and very expensive. There is no cure and Mom hopes that she can get it under control enough that steroids will help keep it in check because that is a cheaper way to go. I get a special diet now of a kibble that is made with fish and sweet potato, it’s not half bad better than having to eat just jello.
