Hi,

Could you please let me know how much garlic you gave your dog and did it help the anal gland situation.

My lab has ongoing issues with anal gland and has bleeding from these issues. She has been on antibiotics the last 3 months. I am resisting surgery and looking for alternative solution.

Thanks, Selma

The first time I found out about anal glands I went to the vet and the wanted to do surgery. It was so bad that he was bleeding out of his butt. I said no to the surgery and they put him on antibiotic. And then had to see the vet again. It was costing too much and he was not getting better. Some one here mentioned that garlic was bad for dogs. Wrong! In desperation to make him better I cruched and put three cloves on his food, since he would not eat it I called my other dog who was healthy and will eat anything and he cleaned up the ill dogs bowl. The next morning the ill dog did not wait for the competition and cleaned up his bowl. I kept both dogs on this routine of garlic in the morning and at night neither one had any ill effects, and the infection cleared up. I do not do it on a regular basis because I have an inside dog, but I know of people that regularly feed their dogs garlic to keep fleas away.
