Dog with leaky anal glands?
Asked May 18, 2012, 06:37 AM
My dog (70lbs mix breed) has had a problem with leaky anal glads. A month ago she was at the vet and they squeezed them and said a lot came out. They told me if it fills up again quickly she will need to be put under so they can insert medicine into the glands directly. Well they are full again and leaky. I know the Dr. did mention something about antibiotics and he doesn't like using them as they aren't as effective taken orally. Does anyone have experience with a situation like this? I'd hate to put her under if I can just give her meds orally to take care of the problem that way. Thanks!
