My dog was bleeding from s anal glands and the vet provided

Customer Question

My dog was bleeding from his anal glands and the vet provided antibiotics.
The issue went away for a month and now the bleeding continues. I tried the laser with a previous dog that I had and it did not give great results.
Is there any other treatment available or should I just remove the glands?
