My 2 year old Boxer has just been diagnosed with an anal gland infection for the second time in 6 months. How can I prevent this, and when if at all should I have his glands removed? Also what will help w/ pain?
You may want to have the anal glands expressed by your vet regularly every 2-4 weeks). Sometimes with chronic anal gland abscesses we recommend removing the glands. You can talk to your vet about this. vetcare
