My bubba Pepi has infected anal glands. Once, my mother was holding him and he bled all over her. But it wasn't blood. It was anal stuffs. The vet operated on him and he got tubed in there to drain it (Ew.) That was, Back in November? October maybe. But My question is, how often does it come back?

if he expresses them properly (during a bowel movement) then you may never have to worry about them again... some dog's have to have it done every couple of weeks, other dogs never have to get it done..... 3 out of 5 of my shih tzu mixes never had to get them expressed (and they are between7 and 8) while the other 2 had chronic problems. the oldest one had them removed a few years ago because it was so bad and the other kept having impacted and infected anals. it hasn't happened in 2 years though (i hope i didn't just jinx it lol)
