Please note, that the 9 month old Papillon "Nana" can play only under strict supervision with these tiny puppies; and only for a very short time.
"Big" dogs (Papillons) get carried away after a while and might hurt the little guys.
In the background you hear my bird "Kelly " speaking to them!!

Anal Glands --Sacs- Infection: a common Small Breed Dog problem.

Canines have two sacs located on the inside of the anus, one on each side. These secrete a liquid substance that helps bowel movements.
Especially on smaller breed dogs, the sacs have to be released ever now and then to avoid them from becoming impacted.
If you see your dog scoot his little bottom on the floor, think of anal sac impaction (It is very common in small breed dogs)

Have him checked by the vet; he can also show you how to release the sacs for a regular maintenance by you, to prevent it from happening again.
A worse case scenario is when your dog does not scoot, but chews near his anus.He most likely will have an infected anal gland, or worse, the sac breaks open because the infection is really bad -a boil.
In that case the dog is very uncomfortable, and the area is very painful.
If you encounter a open wound like that on you little Papillon, wash his rear with sudsy warm water, apply a topic antibiotic cream on the wound and make a quick appointment with the vet!!

There are things you can do to help prevent these anal sac problems:

  • A good quality diet to maintain a solid, slightly firm stool. (The stool pushes against the anal sacs while eliminated)

  • Exercise.

Papillon Dental Care

Removal of plaque on your Papillons teeth is a must, and will add a good many years to your Papis long life. Plaque on his teeth will destroy his gum line, and bacteria will go in his blood stream and destroy vital organs (just like in humans).
You can train your dog to accept a  tooth brush about once per week to remove the plaque and tartar.
But you still have to bring him to the vet to get his teeth checked, and possible have a tooth scale done.
