My first one they tried infusing the glands, didn't work, but I do hope it does for yours.
And yes, Colie, glad your vet 'thinks' that way, most now, feel treating is better than removing. From what I've seen/experienced, dogs that end up with PF's if they are 'true PF disease, usually have other issues, allergies, ibd, sibo, epi etc...The ones that get PF's as a result of anal gland issues are much easier to treat, either topically or removal because it's a 'gland' issue without no underlying issues.. Both of mine had gland issues so I never considered them to have 'true' PF disease..Pf's were the result of those bad glands.
