Sooty, my son's 6 1/2 yr old mixed breed dog is going into hospital on the 21st to have one of her anal glands removed on the 22nd. She has had recurrent bouts of trouble with it. The last time, a few months ago, the vet thought the swelling she had might have been cancer. After treatment with anti-biotics the swelling went down & she was left with only scar tissue from a previous op.
Has anyone elses dogs had either of their glands removed? I've heard that they become incontinent when both are removed. The vet assured me, that with only one being removed, the other one will compensate & she shouldn't have any problems.
