Spencer has an appointment tomorrow to have his anal glands expressed - this will be the 3rd time in 3 weeks. Actually, they could be done more. After expressing, he seems comfortable for only a couple days & then he starts chewing on his bottom. For the last 5-6 years, we have gone to the vet every 4-6 weeks for expressing, but now they seem to fill up in days. I have added extra fiber to his diet, but it has not helped. When we are at the vet tomorrow, I am going to make an appointment to see the vet, but wanted to know if anyone ever had a dog who had the glands removed & if so, how they did. Spencer's vet has in the past, recommended NOT removing them unles they became a daily problem, which they have. I am just worried about surgery at his age (10 years) and the chance of fecal incontinence.
