Momto2GSDs Apples are high in sugar (just like the carrots) but this could be used as a treat (skin on). Wash thoroughly as many chemicals are sprayed on apples unless they are organic.
Peas are high in fiber. The frozen ones would be best as they have already been blanched before they are frozen, so you won't have to cook them. Canned peas have been cooked to death! You may have to put the peas in a blender first (with a little water) if you see them coming out whole in his stool. Then you can freeze the mixture in ice cube trays!

The ground Psyllium seed is the easiest to just spoon it in! Try a local health food store, they usually carry it for their clients. Make sure you mix the kibble and psyllium seed with water an let it set for about 15 minutes before feeding. Start out with 1 teaspoon per meal. After about 72 hours, you can decide if you need to increase or decrease amount.

Jackthelad I have been told apple is good. Would that be with skin on or off though?

AKIRA3 Glad I looked here.
Our 1.5 has had her glands squeezed 3 times at the vet since we rescued her in July.
I requested it because she kept licking her bottom, but no scooting .
we have never had a dog get squeezed this much.
each time the vet said they were full.
Any more tips on how diet can help would be greatly appreciated.

Momto2GSDs You could also try ground Psyllium Seed:
There are several species of psyllium, but the seed husks from Plantago ovata, also known as blonde psyllium, are the best quality and have the highest fiber content.

huntergreen have to ask, do beans cause enough gas for bloat to be a concern?

JakodaCD OA Get the pure canned pumpkin, add a T or so to each meal, Green beans, you can use canned but I would use unsalted..If you get fresh beans, steam them (atleast I would).

Potatoes may be to starchy and not really 'fiber' IMHO,,carrots are high in sugar but are good for a treat.

What food are you feeding? Alot of owners of anal gland issued dogs use a fish base.
