OK, I know this has been discussed before, but I'm wondering if I can bring it up again.
Malone has a verrrrry stinky butt, and lately its really bad (anal glands). We have tried giving him 2 heaping tablespoons of pumpkin in his food at every meal, but we didn't really notice a difference. We have expressed them, but that doesn't seem to make a difference either.
In fact, it is so bad that he has even learned a new command -- "No Fart Art!!!" = "go in your house!" He will get right up and run to his crate at the other end of the house and lick his butt there. haha
Anyway, please can you give me some suggestions on what might prevent this from happening. Should I talk to the vet about it? Its happening at least 1-2 times per day.
I wanted to add two thoughts that I have had....first, because it has been so cold out in the mornings (negative degrees) he has a hard time pooping even with booties on because his feet get so cold. So sometimes he holds it, and I think that after he holds it for a half day (I take him out when it warms midday) but that night the anal glad secretions are worse. Also, I opened a new package of treats and they are Snausages instead of the normal cookies; and I am wondering if they make it worse?
Sorry so long, and thanks for any input!!
