Signs that a pet is suffering from an anal gland issue include: Excessive licking of the surrounding area, ‘scooting’ across the carpet or grass, or the release of a foul, fishy odor and leakage. The likely culprit is anal gland overload. Increasing fiber to support fecal volume is one way to address this. Scoot Stop contains three sources of fiber, including maltodextrin, larch tree extract, and pumpkin powder. Digestion resistant maltodextrin is a bulk producing fiber that increases both bowel regularity and fecal volume. Larch tree extract also enhances the growth of friendly bacteria to maintain a healthy digestive tract, which provides the additional benefits of immune and colon health.
