Reply My vet has been emptying my maltese anal glands manually for about a year. It is so painful for him to have them emptied and there is blood. He has to take steroid eye drops every day of his life from losing one eye to glaucoma and now trying to save the other eye. He is in excellent health other than his anal gland problem. Catalyn and Milk Thisle to detox his liver. He is 15 years old but plays like a puppy.
