When there are anal gland problems I always recheck for intestinal parasites and also look for the presence of allergies. If I suspect allergies I would give Derma-IonX in the food or water to help the immune system. As a general rule I also think digestive enzymes, probiotics, and a fish oil supplement are helpful in reducing inflammation in the body and this can help slow down the rate of anal gland filling. Derma-IonX helps the body better utilize the other supplements for a synergistic effect. You might also switch to a different type of dog food for a month such as fish and potato to see if that helps. Sometimes the same type of food over a long period of time even though it is by different companies can still develop into a food sensitivity. <br /><br />
Remember to introduce the new food into the old diet gradually over 10 days to avoid creating diarrhea.
