 Anal Gland Infections

This treatment worked well for us when Barrett was 4 years old.


For the duration of a year Barrett had constant on-going anal gland infections that our veterinarian was unable to heal, not that Dr. Fritz didn’t constantly try. Our last option was surgery to remove his anal glands which adds a whole new set of problems. Before scheduling surgery, I made some changes to Barrett's diet as well as eliminated some toys. This remedied the anal gland infections and he didn't have another anal gland infection during his lifetime.

Below I list exactly what I did.


  • Use stainless steel bowls for food and water, wash every day.

  • I changed Barrett to Merrick Dog Food because of the higher protein and less grains.

  • I fed him chunks of hard coconut oil daily. Approximately 1/4 cup.

  • I also put liquid coconut oil in his food 2 times a day, approx 1/8 cup each time.

  • I gave him 1 drop of Rocky Mountain oregano essential oil daily by dropping it on a piece of bread and balling up the bread so he couldn’t taste the oil.

  • I threw all his rubber and plastic toys away, and no rawhide bones. 

  • I threw rope toys away when they became too stringing.


In one month Barrett was healed and I put him on a green bean meal on a daily basis for the rest of his life. At this time I discontinued the above oregano oil, hard coconut oil and liquid coconut oil because the green bean meal had an ample amount in it.

I prepared the green beans as stated in the sarcoma treatment site and only added 1/4 cup of liquid coconut oil,

6 drops of Rocky Mountain black cumin oil 1/4 cup of turmeric. I fed Barrett 1 1/2 to 2 cups of the green bean mixture twice a day in his dry dog food. At this time I was treating Barrett for anal gland infections only and he did not have cancer.
