anal glands?

Hello all,

Just trying to see if I can get some word of advice for our current situation*

Ever since yesterday, Bianca has been letting out some not so good smelling liquid out of her rear-end. Very fishy smell that is pretty putrid. It isn't a lot of liquid, more like some drops. I looked online and it seems that she is emptying her anal glands? Yikes.

Anyone have experience with this? Any remedies?

Thanks in advance.

Willie has this issue. It's the worst thing I've ever smelled from a dog in my life. Like a combo of fish and rancid grease. It's unmistakeable. I've bulked up his dry food with additional fiber to try to help with it, but when his stools get too bulky, then the gets constipated, so it's a delicate balance. But it's definitely the most unpleasant smell. When we do see the droplets on, say fabric, it's a bright greenish yellow. And then he always tries to clean it up, so then his breath is fabulous. Ick.
