Title: Anal gland impaction
Post by: Dottie on Feb 04, 2019, 13:57
Thread started to discuss dietary management/prevention of anal gland impaction.

In this thread (https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/forum/general-discussion/1/update-on-freddie-the-cockapoo-now-on-naturediet-feel-good-range/1856/;topicseen) Jill201 has used psyllium husk and found it effective.

Quote Jill201: 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.

I have some psylium husk,....sourced from vet over the counter.

I just put it in with the dogs food and use the feeding guide on the packaging.

It causes bulkier stools....less dry than they are normally on barf complete.

It seems to give the dogs a  bit of a clear out but stools still solid.
