Anal Glands in Dogs (Inflamed)

Many of us, especially those with smaller dog breeds, will have seen their dog dragging its bottom on the ground or continually licking the area. This is usually the first sign that the anal glands on either side of the dog’s anus are full and not emptying during the normal process of having a poo. If left this can cause a minor infection or even an abscess.

It’s important that the diet contains enough roughage but also that the motions are not too soft so that the glands clear properly when they go to the toilet. If your dog shows signs of having this problem, give the daily treatment dosage of Garlic & Fenugreek Tablets for their weight to relieve any minor infection that may be present and bathe the area with purifying Garlic Juice liquid to soothe and cleanse. If the problem persists or worsens consult your veterinary surgeon so that he can clear the glands manually.
