A. Anal glands can certainly stay impacted and get "full" again within weeks if they are not emptying properly. It is a good idea to have your vet take a look, and possible increase your dog's fiber intake (with the use of a higher fiber diet or addition of pureed pumpkin) to help with anal gland expression. If the glands are regularly full, your vet may be able to show you how to express the glands yourself, or can offer other recommendations for long-term treatment.
