Unfortunately, the anal gland has been an on going issue for the past 3 years. We changed his diet, things improved, started seeing a new vet, things improved 1000%. The issue is not knowing if it's compaction of gunk or a tumor. The vet Django sees now is amazing and I trust her especially because she knows my dog and all his "issues" on top of his medical issues.
It's apparent we need to do something, Django is not uncomfortable but he scoots and struggles when pooping. Expressing is no longer an option since what ever is in there is hard, whatever it is. Concern for anal gland rupturing. I've talked to 2 of his other vets (yes, he has an entire team) and they all have said the glands need to come out. I guess expect the worst and hope for the best.
