Thank you for taking the time to review my question. I have a 7 year old Female American Pitbull Terrier. She has an open wound right near her anus. Its not on the anus itself, but its within an inch of it. I have also noticed that there is much swelling in the area, and even on the underside of the tail itself where it would cover the anus, and come into contact with the anus. The underside of the tail looks to be a something like a poison ive (referring to the style of the bumps and swelling there) Every swollen area is red (on the area around the anus, and the tail). I have put bacitracin on the open wound to help close it and to keep it clean. It appeared to help, but I stopped when I noticed the other area. I can send a picture of the affected area if necessary. Please help. My poor riley is in pain. The area is very tender. I can tell it is very painful when touched. Otherwise she runs and plays as normal. Oh, and she also has been rubbing her hindquarters on the ground. What could this be?
Thank you very much
