Q. My pug's having anul gland problems, what can I do besides taking her back and forth to the vet? My vet suggests a high fiber food, what's affordable
A. You could use a supplement called Protexin Profibre , I am not sure if it is available where you live but I am confident it can be purchased on-line. The principle is the same as adding fiber to your dog' s food, that should help bulking up feaces and help to express the glands as they go to the toilet. I would also consider changing your dog' s diet to see if that helps . I am happy to make suggestions but should really know what he is having at present. If you don' t seem to be able to help the glands and recurrent expression is needed, you might want to consider surgery to have the glands removed.
