Anal Gland Supplements for Dogs
Anal gland disease and infection may occur in dogs because of insufficient supplements of fibers in the diet. The adequate proportion of fibers in dogs’ diet can help prevent anal gland infection and smoothen the digestive system's functioning. For example, Calendula compresses (8 drops calendula tincture in 1 teaspoon salt) can relieve anal gland itching applied with a soaked cloth. Glandex and some anal gland fiber pills are also essential for the supplements. As fibers are a plant source, sweet potatoes, and green beans can provide anal gland supplements to dogs. Sufficient water consumption and a canned diet can also meet the requirements. Do not use any medicine other than recommended by a veterinarian.
