When Ruby had gunky stuff in the anals, she had an infection there as well. Antibiotics took care of it.

I've written about this before, but we had the WORST time with Ruby's anal glands for more years that I care to count. I think we put the vet's kids thru college with all of the vet bills. They were blocked all the time no matter what she ate or what we did and so on....she still pooped fine tho.

We didnt' want to have them removed. When we moved to Jacksonville, FL, we met the most wonderful vet in the world (wish we could have taken her with us when we moved again). Apparently she is the only vet in that end of FL that does anal marsupilization (I know I'm not spelling it correctly). The glands aren't removed but cut and sewn inwards and then they shrivel up on their own.

You think a basset does dinosaur sized poop? You should see what comes out (so to speak - ha!) after the glands are done.

No problems on that end ........sorry........... ;) I really can't resist. :p

tee hee
