I have to secret my GSDs anal glands every week and a half or two weeks. Does anybody else have to do this for their GSD that often?
It's just like all of a sudden his anal glands are FULL and SMELLY, his ears reek, and his breath is killer. I have him on a 5 star quality dog food and probiotics (he has gastric issues). I don't understand where all these nasty smells are coming from!I did last fall, because of an infection. I switched his kibble, adding pumpkin and coconut oil. I also started giving raw bee pollen. My one vet figured seasonal allergies, and maybe a hint of food intolerance. He's fine now, fortunately. My regular vet said that continually expressing the glands manually will lead to them thickening, which makes things worse.
