I just had shelby to the vets today to have an infusion done on him to take care of the problem with the impacted anal glands, and when I went to pick him up at the vets the vet mentioned to me that shelby also has anal fistulas I was going to see about putting him on the zd diet again, he curently is on eukanuba germanshepard, which is the food that I had changed him to from first being on zd science diet, and before that pedigree which is when I noticed the problems with shelby, due to a so called change in pedigrees new and improved formula as stated on the bag. I love my dog alot, and have had him since birth I feel that he has a double wammy with both having the anal impaction and the anal fistulas Shelby has been on predazone for a few months, and we are trying to get this under control, I am hoping that by getting the infusion today done, that it may help him is some way, hopefully at least to take care of one of the problems at least.

My 9 year old male German Shepherd was diagnosed with a tiny, as in seed sized, anal fistula 4 weeks ago, he was given 2 weeks of Amoxyclav and at the moment it is clean, dry and looking good. I discovered it during a morning walk when he was very constipated not like him at all but I did find him eating clay a few days earlier. He has never had an anal problem before so it was by chance that I noticed it. He has since then been getting wheatbran oil each day. Yes I have been told that it will re occur so I need to be ready. I really don't want to go the surgey route unless as a last resort. I would love to hear from others how it is best to deal with this dreadful afliction.
