    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    My Min Pin, Towser, looks like he sat on a bee. It is swollen and red. Looks like he is uncomfortable when he walks.

    Hello Towser123!

    I'm sorry to hear your Min Pin is puffy. I wasn't clear if you meant his rear end was swollen or his paw. He could have an Anal Sac issue if it's around his anal area.

    I would definitely recommend taking him in to see the vet to find out what's going on. It sounds like it's very painful.

    Give us an update on Towser when you have a chance,

    I took him to the vet and he had the surgery where they clean the spot or drained it and Towser took some medicine to prevent any infection. For the last two years, he has had to have this procedure.
