Help for anal gland problems is here!

Glandex supplements

Boot the scoot with Glandex!

If your pet makes frequent visits to the veterinarian to have its anal glands (or “sacs”) emptied or treated for infection, Glandex may hold the solution.

Normally, the fluid that is formed in the anal glands (a natural, normal process) is released when your pet has a firm bowel movement. Sometimes the fluid gets blocked (“impacted”), turns into a thick paste, or the anal sac becomes inflamed, and your pet needs help.

Common causes of impacted anal glands are:

  • soft or loose stools
  • digestive problems
  • allergies
  • infection
  • obesity
  • anatomical issues
  • a combination of these problems

You might notice your pet doing one or more of the following:

  • “scooting” or dragging its rear end along the ground
  • licking or chewing at its rear
  • acting uncomfortable (may have difficulty with stairs)
  • straining to defecate
  • producing a foul odor / foul brownish discharge from rear
  • swelling or bleeding from a small hole next to the rectal opening
  • cats may defecate outside the litterbox
  • some pets vomit or have diarrhea (though this is less common)

So how does Glandex help? 

Glandex is a chewable or powder supplement that uses a fiber blend to add bulk to stools, which then helps release anal gland fluid normally with each bowel movement.

Glandex has natural anti-inflammatory ingredients (including omega-3 fatty acids) to address the inflammation and allergies that may be causing your pet’s anal gland problems.

Glandex also includes probiotics and digestive enzymes to aid the health of your pet’s digestive system.

Glandex is available at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic in a beef liver powder for dogs and cats or a peanut butter soft chew treat for dogs, which you give your pet once per day.
