Dog Scooting and Licking, The Role of Diet in Dog Anal Glands
If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Impacted dog anal glands is one of the most unpleasant canine health issues to deal with and it has the ability to lead to serious bacterial infections and dog anal gland cancer if left unchecked. The rest of this article will help you understand and solve the longer term problem with an impacted dog. But right now you have a problem you want to go away and I understand that, so I did some research and came up with the product you see below.
It works four times out of five at a minimum, so should be a good choice for your dog right now. A dogs anal glands are located on both sides of its anal opening.
The two sacs release secretions when a stool of proper size and hardness is passed. Each dog has its own distinct scent and it is how they mark their territory. It is also what dogs sniff at when they greet each other. However, consistently soft stools do not allow the anal glands to do their job. When a dog faces the discomfort of blocked anal glands, they will often scoot around on their rear ends to get relief.
They may also lick their anal area excessively, have trouble defecating or even bite or snap when petted on the hindquarters. In some cases, a pet owner will find this must be done almost every two weeks which can lead to soft tissue trauma. Such an unpleasant and costly cycle would seem a more than obvious sign a diet change is in order.
However, switching over to a diet of commercially made kibble does not help a dog either. Gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea, constipation and foul smelling gas are just as rampant for dogs that eat kibble as blocked anal glands are for dogs that eat canned mush. It is the diet the canine physiology knew for millions of years before the advent of canned and kibble diets 70 years ago. The firm, odorless stools a dog passes on a diet of raw meat and bone ensure its anal glands will always be able to function exactly as they were intended.
There will be no more scooting dog or overwhelming dog odor and no more trips to the vet or groomer for expressing dog glands. Plus, pet owners will have the relief of not having to deal with the fetid stench that is so common in the stools of commercially fed dogs.

Yes, you have one dog with a nturally bomb proof immune system while the other is not quite so strong. Thats the thing with commercisl dog food and vets, fix one problem only to be confronted with another, meanwhile the bills rack up!
Ok, you have some of the basics together but very incomplete. They are not cooked but dehydrated so full of nutritional value and dogs go absolutely nuts for them, so watch that and you can do it with beef heart too. Now, what was not stated was that the bones come from a cooked chicken which means they are rock hard from cooking and yes cooked bones spinter.
Why I say cooked is that I know only a few percent of the dog owning population feeds their dog raw food-sad! Raw chicken bones are extremely soft, pliable and melt to soup in a dogs stomach inside 6 to 8 hours so that rules out the bone stuck in bowel storys. So now the risk is down to somewhere around 1 in every , dogs with the throat part of the equation…still unacceptable to some I imagine. Life carries risks but commercial dog food is a risk I do not take-period seen way too much carnage in my role here.
So do not believe the hype about chicken bones. I have read all of this with interest. Thank you so much for giving us this information. I am worried about my new bichon puppy who is 12 weeks old. She has started scooting on her bottom and not being very keen on her food which is a top grade complete kibble to which I add a little of our homemade meals and sometimes egg or minced beef.
Is she too young or too delicate to go on a raw meat and bone diet? I was thinking of putting a chicken thigh with a little raw carrot or cabbage in the food processor to make a raw mince. So glad you commented, check out the testimonial page and you will see the tinyest Bischon baby. She eats a raw food diet and is in fantastic health. A puppy of any size or breed can eat raw food frome just 6 weeks of age.
They are naturals at it having not been weened onto kibbles and canned mush. A raw food diet achieves this. Yes, perfect-you know what to do. Also give a raw chicken wing or neck etc for her to work on as this concentrates the mind, works the muscles, confidence and wellbeing.
First, I am glad to have come across this page and the wealth of information you and it provides! We have 2 Hungarian Vizslas. Our oldest male has always been a picky eater, and as a result tends to be much too thin. He also has a recurrance of impacted anal glands. We have tried many diet regimines, including natural and raw diets. None of which have offered much help with his weight, but some have helped decrease the frequency in which we make trips to the vet to have the sacs drained.
My questions for you are 1. Would supplementing raw meat and bone with kibble alleviate some of the anal sac problems or do we need to move striclty to an only raw meat and bone diet. Is it safe for us to drain the anal sacs ourselves? Hi Kris, Beautiful dogs the Vizslas, elegant and gentle but full of beans! The only natural way to express the anal sacs is through a raw meat and bone diet-the bone content being the critical part as it forms hard pellet like waste that squeezes the glands on exit.
Also try raw green tripe-generally nevers fails to please! Steps to Clean the Anal Glands: Cover the base of the tub in plastic refuse bags or an old towel. Position your pet inside the tub empty of water with its head to the left and anal area to the right for right handed people. Gently hold a warm compress to the anal opening and surrounding areas for a minute or two. This is uncomfortable for your pet, so do this slowly and gently!
Very gently pinch the anal gland between your fingers and the accumulated secretion should squirt out. Once the glands have been expressed, wash out the black, brown, or gray substance that comes out with shampoo in order to get rid of the unpleasant odor. If this happens make sure to contact your veterinarian immediately. Diet seems like a very important preventative measure.
What if the dog currently has a impacted gland? The 1st procedure requiring anesthetic is very pricey as would be surgery. Is it too late to try boosting the fiber in his diet or even doing salt bath soaks? Hi Ashly, yes it is, very much so. The best preventitive way is through feeding raw meaty bones.
Go see another vet for second try. Ask a local groomer if they can try express them. She has already had one surgery. We now have to take her in every 6 weeks to have it expressed. It has only been 3 days since we had her at the vets and she is already scooting. Her stool seems to be pretty firm already. The vet said that the dogs anal fluid is very thick almost like caulk that is hardening.
You have mentioned that raw meat would give a dog harder stools but would it help to thin the anal fluid so it could be excreted easier with the stool? She eats a lot of grass. Would that be contributing to her problem? Hi I also have a 14 week old Hungarian Viszla. At the moment it seems his glands need to be expressed every two weeks or he gets very smelly.
He is a picky eater but around the time they need to be expressed he seems to be even more so. I have him on mainly a raw food diet of beef mince ,chicken necks, thighs ,carrots and a bit of kibble, his stools are usually very firm but it seems every 2weeks his glands have built up again.
When the vet expresses them they do not appear to be infected could there be another reason they are not secreting? Hi Tim, first off you must drop the kibble as it conflicts with the raw food.
Because kibble requires a different pH in the gut to digest, it can make your puppy more vulnerable to the bacteria in the raw meats.
Feed about one third bones to two thirds meat. Swap the beef mince for turkey or lamb mince may help his appetite. Raw green tripe is also an awesome balanced food. I think by firming up his stoosl a little more you might find a biting point where they begin to express.
He needs to strain a little on hard pellet waste from the bone content. So up the bone content a little and see how it goes. By switching her to an all raw fed diet you create the opportunity for her to balance her body chemistry and boost her immune system.
The grass eating is an instinctive healing behavior used as a pugetive to help clean a poluted gastro intestinal system brought about most likely from the present diet you feed.
The firm stools from raw waste bone will help to express the anal gland naturally and the diet in general will bring about hormonal balance and should thin the fluid. My greyhound of 9years is constantly licking her rear end and sometimes her stools are really runny then other times she is ok.
