It's time to leave your dog's anal gland problems behind...

It's time to Boot the Scoot!

Let's face it, talking about our pet's anal glands isn't exactly the most pleasant conversation, is it?

While some pet owners may just see it as a stinky, frustrating, and sometimes embarrassing issue (did Fido just scoot across your future in-laws white carpet?), reality is anal gland problems affect millions of pets and if left untreated, can become a serious health issue.

The good news is, there is an all-natural solution that can help your pet leave their anal gland problems behind for good!


If you've never heard of this problem before, you're certainly not alone. I had no experience with anal gland issues until one of Sophie's annual vet visits. During the examination, our vet noticed her glands felt full and asked if she had been scooting lately. I answered yes, unaware of the reason for her butt-scoot boogie, and my wonderful vet began to educated me on the issue.

Anal gland issues arise in both dogs and cats when the glands become over-filled, blocked, or irritated. When the anal glands fill up excessively, pressure is created and it can be very uncomfortable for your pet.

I quickly learned this meant Sophie needed to have her glands expressed, or emptied, during her annual vet visits. I also learned what signs to watch for - including excessive scooting and/or licking of her hind end, releasing a sudden foul odor, and straining to defecate - to determine if a quick trip to the vet was needed in between her regular visits.

While the expressing process does not harm her, it certainly isn't very pleasant. Fortunately, Sophie's scooting reduced a lot after a change to her diet, but it didn't put an end to the scooting completely.

So when I heard about Glandex, an all-natural supplement that promotes healthy anal gland function, I knew we had to give it a shot!

 

How Does Glandex Work?

Glandex, made with a unique fiber blend, was designed to be a more effective alternative to frequent anal gland expressing, which can sometimes further irate those glands.

Glandex helps to improve the consistency of your pet's stool, resulting in the large, firm stools which create the pressure needed during defecation in order for your pet to empty their glands properly, and naturally. 

Thanks to added probiotics and digestive enzymes, Glandex also helps to support an overall healthy gastrointestinal tract.
Glandex is the only product that addresses all of the underlying causes of anal gland problems and works from the inside out to help maintain healthy anal glands. - Glandex website

Made in the USA using only human-grade all-natural ingredients, Glandex's patented formula is scientifically formulated with a special blend of high quality fiber including pumpkin seed, natural anti-inflammatories, omega-3 fatty acids, digestive enzymes, and probiotics. It does not contain any corn, wheat, soy, or artificial ingredients or preservatives.

I really appreciate how easy Glandex is to give to our pets. It is available in two easy to use formulas; peanut butter flavored soft chews for dogs only, or beef liver flavored powder for both dogs and cats.

Sophie has been getting daily doses of Glandex for about five weeks now, alternating between the powder and soft chews. She happily gobbles up the soft chew, and doesn't miss a kibble when I sprinkle the powder on her dinner... but if I had to guess, I'd say the soft chews are probably her favorite just because she thinks she's getting an extra "treat."

You're probably thinking, okay so it's easy to give to our pets and Sophie thinks it's tasty, but does it work?

The answer is an enthusiastic yes!

Not only have we seen a visible improvement in the firmness of her stools, but I'm happy to report that we have not seen any scooting during this time!

And that, my fellow parents of boot-scooting-dogs, deserves a loud woo-hoo!

My cat's anal glands exploded a few years back. My holistic vet suggested we try Glandex powder. I'm happy to say, we have not had an episode since!

Sue said...

Thankfully that's one problem we haven't had. It's good to know there's a product that helps those who do.

Parenting Patch said...

None of my pets have any problems with their glands. My vet recommends doing nothing unless a problem comes up, so I follow his advice.

Denise Comeau said...

I never knew what that scooting behavior was all about. That makes so much more sense now.

Maria Long said...

this is good to know, my dog had to get it done at her last grooming. I don't want to deal with that, a little supplement sounds like a good solution.

Kristen Campbell said...

Our dog doesn't seem to have issues with this, but our neighbor's dog sure does, poor thing :( I will send her the link to this post!

Eileen said...

I have noticed our dog scooting before. My first thought was that he had worms. I took him to the vet immediately and I was told it has nothing to do with worms. It was his anal glands. I don't remember what we gave him to address the issue. All I know is that we have not seen him doing that weird butt rubbing on the floor/carpet anymore.

Marielle Altenor said...

Poor Sophie! Good thing your vet caught this and was able to educate you. Now you know what to look for.

What a brilliant sounding product. Marble our Cocker Spaniel suffered with his anal glands when he was alive and the vet and groomers used to clear them out but this would've been great to gave known about. Glad the gland situation has improved for you using this product.

Edie ThePug said...

A dog scooting, although can seem funny, its no laughing matter! It can become very painful for our dogs. I'm happy that you have found this product that helped and work for Sophie.

Sadie and Co. said...

Two out of four of our tribe are scooters. It can be extremely uncomfortable for our companions if left untreated. Our vet checks their glands each visit and will express them if needed. He also showed me how to check to see if they need to be done (not to do them - the vet knows what he is doing and I will happily leave it to him). I am interested in trying this product between visits. Maybe the expressing will no longer be necessary!

Heather Wallace said...

Glandex sounds like it would be a wonderful option for Gonzo. He is no longer allowed on the couch because of his anal leakage. We've tried fiber and supplements. Pumpkin has been a wonderful addition to his diet, but I think Glandex supplements would give him that extra edge!

Hiking With Hendrix said...

Definitely a topic I need to pay more attention to. Thanks for reminding me. I actually always lean towards maybe they need to be wormed when they boot scoot. Need to co spider anal gland issues.

Jodi Clock said...

Never knew this existed! I'm glad I read this, especially for cats. The boot scoot boogie is not fun. I can't wait to share this with my friend who was asking about this.

Carleenp said...

I had no idea there were supplements for this until I saw it on another blog recently. Very useful!

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

We're so glad this worked for Sophie! It sounds like a great product, and I will share it with my friends who are owned by dogs.

Kitty Cat Chronicles said...

One of my dogs growing up had anal gland issues and used to scoot her booty across the floor all the time! She would have to get the expressed and would also have to sit in a warm bath sometimes to help sooth them. Poor girl. Glandex sounds like a great solution, and I love that's it's all-natural!

Jana Rade said...

I like seeing natural solutions and supplements. I checked the product ingredients and it does sound good.

Tenacious Little Terrier said...

Mr. N occasionally scoots. We tried the powder and it helped.

Beth Patterson said...

My Sophie had some problems with her anal glands a few years ago. I imagine it was quite painful for her. I'm going to look into this for her just as a precaution.

Sweet Purrfections said...

This is great to hear. My mom's dog just had to have his anal glands expressed this past week. I have a feeling he doesn't eat the type of nutritional food he needs, so a supplement may be the way to go. He does love treats, so this may be an option.

ShaylaS11 said...

We don't have much of a scoot problem around here, but this is great info to have! I know plenty of clients would be interested in knowing there was a product to help out there! No one wants a scooter!

Kamira G said...

I only recently heard of Glandex product but happy to know pet owners have this as an option now. I had a cat that had to get anal gland surgery and it wasn't pleasant for her. She fully recovered however, it would have been nice to have access to a product like this way back when.

Cathy Armato said...

Phoebe has had a few issues over the years with her glands being very full. Once when our Vet was expressing her glands, it squirted out so much it got on the Vet Tech, BOL!! She took it all in stride though. We get them expressed both at the groomer and at the Vet now which helps but I always keep an eye on it. I like that this product is all natural and easy to administer, sounds like a really good alternative to frequent Vet visits, thanks for sharing.

Thank goodness my dog Dexter doesn't have this issue. However, I board dogs at my house and lots of them do and of course it drives me nuts. I am going to try out this product and recommend it to my clients. Do you know how long it takes to work?
Thank you, Laura

Laura@thepetsitterstale.com said...

Thanks for this great post. My dog, Dexter doesn't have this issue, thank goodness. I do dog boarding at my house and many of my visiting friends have this issue though. My clients will schedule grooming for after they pick up their dog so I'm sure the case is that they need their glands expressed. Wondering how long it takes the supplement in snack form to work? Best, Laura.
