Hello everyone! My doodle, Shelbe, is 2 years old and I thought it was time I join the forum. I have gotten wonderful advice on this forum. I need to elaborate on the prior topic of the smelly doodle. Shelbe has a bit of an anal gland problem too. He was previously on California Natural Lamb and Rice and only needed "cleaning out" periodically during the year. I switched him to Merrick Pet food after all the recalls and he needs to go to the vet almost monthly. Help! The previous message said something about switching foods. Please let me know what foods you are all using that don't have this problem. My vet tech suggested plenty of fiber too - such as carrots and adding Metamucil to his food. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks and I'll get pictures posted so you can see my sweet "little boy" Shelbe.
