How do I give Glandex to my pet?
Glandex comes as a naturally flavored powder that you give with your pet's food once a day using the dosing guidelines on the label or on our ingredients page. The best way to give Glandex is to sprinkle it directly on top of your pet's dry food. It can also be mixed into canned pet food or mixed with a few teaspoons of warm water and then mixed into the food. Pet's love the taste of Glandex and tend to eat their food more eagerly with Glandex mixed in.
How many doses are in one bottle of Glandex?
The 4 oz. size bottle contains 25 doses of Glandex while the 5.3 oz. size bottle contains 33 doses of Glandex (based upon a 1 tsp daily dose). On average one bottle of Glandex will last your pet between 4-6 weeks depending upon the dosing amount being used.
What is the main difference between the 4 oz. size and 5.3 oz. size bottles of Glandex?
Both sizes of Glandex contain the exact same ingredients, concentration, and dosing and the only difference between the two sizes is that the 5.3 oz. size is slightly larger and contains a larger quantity of Glandex.
Will Glandex help if my pet's anal glands are "leaking"?
Yes, Glandex can help pet's that have leaking anal glands who may suddenly leave a discharge or have their anal glands empty spontaneously. Glandex can help in these situations as many pet's with leaking anal glands are either not emptying their glands properly on their own, or have very irritated and inflamed anal glands that are over secreting liquid.
Will I still need to have my pet's anal glands expressed?
It is recommended (but not necessary) to have your pet's anal glands emptied prior to starting Glandex. Intermittent or regular anal gland emptying may still be needed depending upon the severity of your pet's condition, however Glandex can greatly reduce or completely eliminate the need for manual anal gland expressing. If you ever feel that your pet's anal glands need emptying please seek proper medical attention.
What else can I do to help my pet's anal gland problems?
Along with using Glandex regularly it is important to feed a diet that is made from high quality ingredients and free from excessive fillers to help maintain firm and solid stools. Maintaining your pet's ideal weight is important as overweight pets may have increased difficulty emptying their glands. Regular exercise can help to tone and strengthen some of the muscles that help to empty the glands. If your pet has allergies than reducing exposure to these allergies can help to reduce anal gland problems.
