    Re: Infected Anal Glands

    I am relieved to say Cosette is doing better; it's taken nearly three weeks to get to this point. Her infection in her bum is healing nicely and her hearing is slowly returning. I am weaning her off the prednisone . What an appetite!

    I'm happy to hear Cosette is doing better. That must have been scary! Sounds like my luck, if something with a medicine can go wrong, it will. Glad you're feeling better, little Frenchiepie. <3

    Re: Infected Anal Glands

    Is that a common thing to need to get your frenchies anal glands squeezed on a regular basis? We have 4 other pets besides our frenchie puppy, and of all of them only the cat needs his glands squeezed once or twice a year. The rest of the animals released theirs naturally. Just wondering if this is something common among this particular breed and if it is something we should watch for with our puppy.

    Re: Infected Anal Glands

    They are suppose to express naturally . My first Frenchie had minor issues ; I would give her a few tablespoons a week of canned pumpkin which helped a lot. Cosette has been with me only 4 months so I don't know her history. My vet said to add 1/4 teaspoon of Metamucil per week to her food.

    I know we discussed this in a thread a few months ago but if anyone has knowledge to share I would be grateful.
