Abscessed anal gland.

Poor Django had an abscessed anal glad. Of course, this has to happen when I am out of town. I took him to the vet immediately and they drained it, put him on antibiotics, and thankfully he is resting comfortably. A little sore under the hood but he's doing pretty good. He has a nice bulky stool so I am not sure what could have caused this. Has anyone had this problem before?

Bella developed anal gland issues in the last year or so. She never had a problem before. My vet said this can happen as they age. When I bathe Bella, I check to see if the glands feel full. She get them expressed every other month on average.

I think that's what's going on with Django. He's getting older. The groomer use to check his anal glands when she would groom him and then stopped for a bit due to other issue going on in the back end. Seems we need to add this to her list of things to do again. I hate the thought of our dogs getting old.
