Hi All,

A  year ago i was asking advice about changing Freddie's food over to help with his allergies and anal glands etc and i thought you would like an update.

I initially used Forthglade for about 6 months but then in September moved him onto Naturediet "Feel Good" range.
He mainly has the Fish and the Salmon packs and things have improved immensely. He has gone 4 months without anal glands being done and he is completely off the Apoquel tablets (thrilled with that). I have no idea what has caused this improvement but i suspect it is the limited ingredients. He occasionally has the lamb variety but that can cause runny poop. The only negative is actually opening the carton!!

For treats he has the Apple mini treats from Forthglade and Anco Sea Jerky and Dried Sprats.

I must add that i also give him a teaspoon of Physillium Husk every morning and a teaspoon of Plusbac (probiotic).

That’s great news Jill and I am so pleased. Thank you so much for the information. This could well be useful for other people who have dogs with similar issues. I have heard of psyllium husk it but not known of anyone who has used it.

Hi Dottie.
The vet recommended Protexin Pro Fibre for Freddie's anal glands but it gave Freddie the runs. So on recommendation from a friend and also the nurse at the vets we tried Organic Blonde Pysillium Husk (from Amazon) and this suits Freddie. I mix a teaspoon of it with 1 tsp of water and 1 tsp of the Plusbac and add it to his food in the morning. I can recommend it.
