|Vance's anal glands abscessed on raw, always without warning. For some reason it only happened when he was blowing coat - the rest of the time he was fine. If I added fiber to his diet, he was fine. I don't have the faintest idea what the connection was. It doesn't seem possible there is one, but it was every darn time he blew his coat, while he was eating raw (with no fiber - I would think he was all set after a few weeks of no problems and quit adding fiber, then we'd be right back where we started next coat blow).
Coconut oil may have helped too - I always added it with fiber, so it could have been either. In any case, I never had a problem while he was getting coconut oil. A lot of people say probiotics help, although Vance was on them constantly and his glands would still abscess... Then again, he was on them constantly because his GI tract was always a mess, no matter what we did.
