I have been battling with this for a while now.
Molly has always had a diet of veg/fruit/chicken etc. strictly no commercial food,
a couple of months ago I added bran to her food and we have not had any bottom problems for roughly 4 months. :)
Dougall is a different story, he is on a similar diet but he has been fed the Royal Canin biscuits as a treat. He has had infections, impacted and full glands despite bran and usual things. The last 4 weeks we have completely withdrawn all commercial treats/biscuits. We went to the vets this evening, I couldn't believe it, the dreaded anal glands :eek: were completely clear!
We havn't quite got to grips with Dotty yet as we are in the process of changing her diet now.
I think I might have got to the bottom of it. Complete natural feeding seems to be the answer :xfngr:

:badgrin: very good :D


So pleased that the dreaded bottoms seem to be more under control...

We check ours regularly and learnt to empty them to prevent problems occurring - but it's much better that you are not getting problems in the first place.


Royal Canin changed their ingredients - the Mini adult food, which used to be quite good, is now very high in Maize :eek:

Ingredients:
Maize, poultry meal, maize flour, maize gluten, animal fat, animal protein (hydrolized), sugar beet pulp, soy oil, yeast, fish oil, minerals, DL-Methionine, sodium triphosphate, L-Lysine, egg powder, L- Carnitin.
