Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

In there is pus and thus infection in the anal glands, then Amoxicillin can be of benefit. That said, the glands would need to be first emptied to reduce the swelling, pain,and prevent rupture. And if the were just swollen and inflamed, then emptying them could be curative and antibiotics unnecessary. Of course, if the glands are severely inflamed, then dog safe anti-inflammatories would be indicated as well.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
