    Just make sure who every is doing the sugary has experience with little to no problems. Where I work we do a few a year and those dogs have had anal sac abscess or a tumor. None have had any problems with fecal incontinence. But it can happen. Make sure they send you home with pain meds and antibiotics.

    He has had a recurring perianal fistula that is very painful to him and very costly to me. The last time it absessed and opened it took $700.00 worth of antibotics and 3 months to close. The hole just opens and bleeds. Anyway, I am taking him toa vet that has done many of them and I pray this one is problem free. I really don't know much about this and I hope the vet will explain everything, just thought if any of you went thru this you could give me some tips.

    It sounds as if he'd be better off having them removed. I had a Chihuahua Years ago who had really bad problems with anal glands. He was getting abscesses about every 2-3 months. Despite changing his diet & cleaning them out myself (not something you want to do on a full stomach) he still got them. The vet recommended getting them taken out & I did. He was on the usual antibiotics for about 2 weeks after but he was fine ever since. I didn't have that problem with my Lab but hopefully yours will come through it as well as mine did.

    As long as you have 100% faith in your vet & he/she explains everything to you from pre op to recovery, he should be fine & a lot happier too.
