It's common in small dogs id think because larger dogs generally no trouble with anal glands. Also Jessie was 9/10 month old. 10 month old she had luxatting patella and infected anal glands. Just to warn you what comes out when expressed can be green and if ever smells its enough to make you want to get out the room. No jokes and not trying to scare you

No prunes are fine. Organic no sulfur.

prunes are not related to grapes/raisins and no toxicity that I am aware of. Can cause diarrhea, just as in people, though. Even grapes/raisins are 'toxic' to only certain dogs, while others are able to eat large quantities with no problem. There has yet to found a toxic principle for those individual dogs who do develop renal disease following ingestion of this fruit. We treat all dogs as potentially sensitive when they ingest a lot of raisins or grapes, since there is no way to tell which are the overly sensitive dogs and which aren't before it's too late... but I have seen many dogs that have eating hundreds of grapes or raisins with no untoward symptoms whatsoever. Still, better to be safe than sorry.

Yes, we have experienced something very similar to that. My dog did the same thing and one day I seen this little white sliver of what I thought was white paper next to her stool, it was a tapeworm segment. Flea tapeworms do not cause too many problems for dogs as with some other tapeworms, however, dried segments do! My dog, and I don't know how had tapeworms for 4 years and we didn't know until they put her on Pred which let the tapeworm get out of control. But tapeworm segments can get in the dogs anal glands and dry and then eventually break open and let those nasty irritating eggs get all over. And the eggs will cause severe irritation and sometimes even turn the perianal and rectum dark dark red to almost black. You may never see a segment come out if the dog is taking care of them when they do. My dog was eating them as soon as they came out and caused ulcers on her inner lips and soft palate. Tapeworms may never show any symptoms, including weight loss so it might be a good idea to ask the vet if they think it could be that.

It's been a week since her glands were expressed, and the swelling is still on her tail, and she's still licking at it occasionally. I'd also swear it's slightly further down her tail than before, maybe 1/4-1/2 an inch. The vet checked her tail and didn't feel anything, and concluded it must only be her glands. When her glands were full, that was the end of it.

Google finds NOTHING on this, and I'd expect to see something similar from somewhere. Not sure what to do now.

Can you look at it with a magnifying glass or something similar. I find all kinds of crap on my dog doing that. Things look totally different when they are magnified. Keep checking her and searching google. If you can give me all the signs and symptoms again, I will do a search also while searching on my dog
