you need to start at your vet clinic
i get the impression she has not seen a vet?
if she has, what was their diagnosis or explanation of why there would be frank blood pouring out her butt?
honestly my mind goes to cancer of some sort before fistulas

My girl had her anal glands removed six months ago and it was rough for a few days after the surgery I hope you can get it cleared up with meds and she won't need to have them removed but I can only stress to have this surgery done by a board certified surgeon and not by a regular veterinarian. There are many stories about dogs having issues after this surgery if the surgeon is not experienced. Here is a good article: Anal Sacculectomy

|Firewife89||Yes, I would rather not have them removed if we can avoid that. She is older so we really don't want to do surgery. But even with an infection I have never heard of them being blood filled like that. That's why I was asking about the fistulas.|

Start with antibiotics. Mist bets are not going to remove anal glands because of one infection. It's a procedure that can easily lead to fecals incontinance.

ANd yes what does the vet say? You might want to consider having the glands removed

|Firewife89||Sorry, I'm new. How do I ask a MOD to change the title?|

|BowWowMeow||This sounds like anal fistulas. Unfortunately they are common in gsds. There are many threads on this board about managing them. I would ask a mod to change your title to Anal Fistulas so that some of the people who have experience can help you.|
