Anyone else have an issue with their westiepoo's anal glands filling and LEAKING????? The BEST dog in the world, and even though this happens, I wouldn't trade her for anything, but boy is it awful. It has gotten to where we have to take her to get them expressed every month. She is 4 years old now and this has happened since she was a puppy, we thought she'd grow out of it, tried everything imaginable because we looked it up online. We thought she had stopped, hadn't done it since Auguse, YAY!, but yesterday....UGH. Any thoughts or same issues?

Our beagle, Sadie had this problem........two things you can do is to either change her dog food and/or feed her fiber such a canned pumpkin mx. A vet gave us this information. Good luck.

We were told to add a table spoon of canned pumpkin to Rudty's hard food and it increases their fiber, firms up their poop which forces them to push harder when they have to poo.. Rusty use to have a smelly fish butt and after a few extractions and a canned pumpkin diet we no longer smell him... Good luck they are the sweetest dogs ever!!!
