These glands are situated on either side of the dog’s anus and sometimes may become blocked, particularly in the smaller breeds of dog. Often, the first sign of this is the dog dragging its bottom on the ground or continually licking the area. It is essential that the diet contains enough roughage but also that the motions are not too soft so that the glands are cleared by the normal pressure of faecal evacuation. Give the daily treatment dosage of Garlic & Fenugreek tablets to relieve any minor infection that may have occurred and bathe the area with Garlic Juice to soothe and protect. If the problem persists or worsens consult your veterinary surgeon so that he can clear the glands manually, as in extreme cases an abscess may result.
