anal gland problems in dogsMy 4 year old mixed breed dog was recently diagnosed with impacted anal glands which were expressed by the vet. She was then given a 7 day course of antibiotic. She is fine now. But our other dog, an 8 year old Australian shepherd, is exhibiting the same signs as our younger dog. He is uncomfortable when having a bowel movement- he seems to strain. And he has the most horrendous fishy smell to him. Both dogs have been eating rabbit droppings from the backyard and both have recently torn into the kitchen garbage while we were out eating a lot of its contents. Both dogs have exhibited the same high energy level they always have. The Australian shepherd is just more whiney because he needs to go out to use the bathroom more often. His stool has been loose- mucousy and grey-black. Does anyone know of any remedies that have been helpful in treating both the impaction and a possible infection? I'd appreciate any advice you could offer.

single (3 pellets) dose hepar sulphuris calcareum 30c--no repeat dose -- for young dog ----in mornig befoe alowed to eat..
single dose (3 pelets) sulphur 30c for older dog--NO repeat dose..
so aloow olive/flaxseed oil mix --not much --2 tablespoons each a day is ok...and only raw meat--throw away any other stuff you have --definitly no canned food--no processed at all...lamb ;beef ok (raw)--no pork or fish..
also buried bones with sme meat on -allow earth breakdown --this create enzymne canines need..as alos earth acids make calcium assimalatable..
allow dogs free rn get grass to compliment diet--natural for them
after giving remedies handle dogs with care--it is at times sulphur/hepar bring out hidden anger...so keep this in mind--
also will need folow (for older dog) calcarea carbonica --but decide that later..
