Just started a raw food doggie diet; Can I look forward to him naturally excreting his anal glands with this new diet?

If your dog is used to having his butt expressed I would still do it, just wait another 2 weeks longer than you usually would. Ask the groomer if his glands seemed less full or not. If she says yes, then you can add another two weeks to the next time that you have his glands expressed. You do not want stinky butt leakage in your home from thinking food is going to do that for you, when there are several factors, such as genetics, that come into play... not diet alone. You also don't want his sacs bursting because then he will have a leaky butt for life! ^
