The Effect of Nutrition on Dog Anal Gland Problems
This particular client has been visiting the veterinary every week to have Dog Anal Gland Problems / expressed. The client is looking for nutritional advice to treat the anal glands.
Background The Dog Anal Gland Infection
The Anal Gland main purpose, in dogs, is to enable them to mark their territory and identify other dogs. Its other purpose is to eliminate toxins, substances, and other waste not needed by the body. The Dog Anal Gland Problems can spontaneously empty themselves, especially under times of stress (internal or external), and creates a very sudden unpleasant odor around your dog. If your dogs feces are normally firm and his body is healthy (low toxicity), the anal glands usually empty when the dog defecates.
When the dog’s stools are soft or your dog’s body is overly toxic they will not exert enough pressure on the anal glands, which causes them to fill. This may cause discomfort as the full anal glands pushes on the anus and may also be followed by biting, scratching, or scooting on the rear. Failure to empty the anal glands leads to routine expressing of the anal glands by a vet or groomer.
Dog Anal Gland Problems
- Anal gland Infection
- Anal gland dysfunction aka not emptying on their own
- Anal gland abscess aka caused by a tear of the anal gland due to irritation on the opening
- Anal gland tumors
Factors that cause anal gland problems in dogs
- Non bio-available diet (processed, artificially flavored, preserved food, high starch foods)
- Body toxin build up (usually from food but can also come from polluted air, water, or pharmaceuticals)
- Obesity due to carb based diet, slow metabolism, or lack of exercise
- Colon and vital organ inflammation or irritation which is usually related to toxicity
- Surgery, muscle inflammation, or bone deterioration on or near the back, hips, tail bone, or rear
When it comes to getting their dogs Anal Glands Expressed, which is the most common problem, owners are convinced that it is a normal part of the pet care process when actually full or inflamed anal gland problems in dogs can be reversed and prevented.
The first step in improving anal gland problems in dogs as well as overall health is detoxification. Anal glands will fill quicker if the body is toxic. Toxins such as bacteria, yeast, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, and metabolic waste can circulate within the body or sit in the colon causing irritation and allergies. When the body tries to rid itself of these toxins they first go to the anal glands to be emptied. If the Anal Glands are not emptied the toxins then go to the skin, ears, and eyes to be sent out of the body. Over toxicity can also cause diarrhea and soft stools which will not help the anal glands empty on their own. PWZ Purifying Clay for Anal glands Problems is a great supplement for detoxing due to its alkalizing and absorbent properties. It pulls large amounts of toxins out of the body to greatly decease inflammation, allergies, and the fullness of anal glands.
The next step is switching to a healthier, low carb, high protein, and bio-available diet, preferably a raw diet. A raw diet of whole-prey meat and vegetables gives the proper balance of protein, healthy fiber, and vitamins to prevent toxins from entering the body and maintain firm stools. In this stage the PWZ silica supplement for anal gland problems will help repair any deterioration, tears, or abscesses, rebuild the lining of the colon, and boost the immune system.
