1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Supracaudal Gland (tail gland) Hyperplasia Empty
PostSubject: Supracaudal Gland (tail gland) Hyperplasia   Supracaudal Gland (tail gland) Hyperplasia EmptyThu Oct 11, 2018 11:42 pm

Our now 12 year old neutered male had an issue with this a few years ago. Our vet performed surgery but said it would unfortunately most likely come back. Well, it’s back and is presently being treated with a medicated shampoo with benzoyl peroxide and topical antibiotic. The skin looks better but theres still swelling in his tail. Wondering if anyone has had this problem? Ive read its typically seen with intact males and that testosterone plays a role. Our guy was neutered at 8 months, but later it was found he had ectopic ureters causing urine dripping/leaking. He then underwent laser surgery to correct it but he needs to take methyltestosterone 3 times a week since age 3 due to weakened sphincter muscle. Any advice would sure be appreciated. This poor guy has also been through double knee TPLO surgeries a few years ago so we dont want to put him through anything else if at all possible. Thanks so much!

After that many years on the testosterone I wonder if you could lessen his dose any? It takes a while for the medication to kick in sometimes I've heard and completely clear it all up. If all that's left is some swelling you may need to look into a compression wrap or a compress for it a couple times a day. The medicated shampoos can be had over the counter now or bought online so I would add it to my line up all the time and if the area looks like a flair up might be coming on just start giving his tail a bath. I've also heard that adding a mixture of coconut oil and sugar to make a sugar scrub to rub into the zone can help. Or you can try using colloidal silver spray on it.
