|Our pup Peppers has finally, after 3 months, cleared her anal gland infection. The glands were somewhat filled on Monday when we went in, so the vet said we could try metamucil to supplment her fiber. We've tried pumpkin, and that doesn't seem to help, and she does get carrots for treats. Do we just sprinkle the metamucil on her dry food?
About 3 weeks ago, we changed her from Pro Plan to Wellness Core fish variety to try a better food. Both of these options are fish - so I wonder if trying a new protein variety from Wellness might help her? Or if it just takes time (more than 3wks?) for the new food to adjust? The vet said she wouldn't change the food, just try the metamucil. She's still nibbling at her butt a few times a day - so I wonder if this has just become a habit, or if her seasonal allergies are acting up, or if it's the food?
I'm really hoping to keep any more issues/infections at bay - so I will try the metamucil and any other suggestions anyone has! We wish we had punch cards for our vet because we are there so often!!
