Piper Posted December 13, 2004 Report Share Posted December 13, 2004 Hi all, Let's see where to start, I did try the seach function, but didn't really find anything...Piper has issues with her anal gland's and needs to go in every month or 6 weeks for the "finger wave" :eek: and she's terrified of the vet as it is and so would love to not put her through this. Someone mentioned adding fiber to her food (FYI-she eats dry food). So last night, I chopped up some baby carrots and mixed them in. Piper ate and then came into the kitchen, I looked to see how much she ate and had to laugh because she didn't eat one single carrot, the little pieces were on the floor in front of her bowl and then in the bowl itself-it was as if she would take a mouthful, eat the kibble and spit out the carrots. So, my question is-what are some other ways to add fiber to her diet? Does anyone else have the same issue's-their dog that is? I don't want to have the glands removed, it is not an option-I haven't heard anything good on the outcomes of that surgery and so would like to see if I could remedy it by adjusting her diet. She is very active and not overweight at all, rather a bit underweight so that is not the problem either. Any ideas? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
