Hello my 10 year old neut. Std. Poodle has had a swollen bulbus gland making urination very difficult. He is on antibiotics and anti-inflamitories however this treatment doesn't seem to be working. What other options do I have? Can this gland be removed? Steriods? We havent done X-rays yet but think it might be necessary to see if the prostate is also involved. He is eating, drinking, wants to go for walks, he just can't urinate. I am concerned that the gland will eventually become too swollen and cut the urniary track off completely which will mean certain death!
Any help or suggestions will be geratly appreciated.
Sorry, I can't help you on the Bulbus Gland....This is the first time I've heard of it....Maybe someone else will post...My question is: Have they ruled out stones that may be blocking the urinary track? I know one kind of stone does not show up on xrays, but the other kind does? Just a thought....Karla
Did you find a solution to the swollen Bulbus Glandis? My 11 year old Lab is suffering from the same situation. We have been to the Vet 4 times and still no results. Any information would be helpful! Thanks!
