I have a question about the dreaded...Anal Leakage.. Lately one of my dogs has been expressing himself in his sleep. It looks like maybe a teaspoon at a time, and am wondering what to do about it. (BLAH..that awful smell...My poor husband literaly gags and almost pukes so I HAVE to clean it up...) Could diet be a factor? because as I think about it, this has been happening more often because we had to switch temporaily to a lower brand dogfood since I had to quit my job. (I am putting him back on the better quality stuff again once things catch back up, prob in about a months time.) No puffiness, no redness, I don't see any signs of infection, he only smells when he leaks. I read somewhere about giving him pumpkin?? Sorry for posting quite a few questions lately!! Seems like something else always 'pops' or "leaks" out. Poor guy, we have been calling him juicy juice now as a nickname...ewww...gross. For now, no more laying on the bed or couch!!
