My girl has over active gland, and had a nasty infection around 4 months old. Oral Antibiotics did nothing, but when they injected them with antibiotics it helped significantly, however she had to have it done twice. Being that this is a first time for your dog, I’d have the vet inject them and see what happens, you might have to do it twice like I did. Personally, I would not even consider having them removed, unless it was a last resort. You can also try a treat called no scoot, it won’t do anything for the infection but it could prevent it from happening in the future, dogs secrete anal gland fluid when the have a bowel movement, loose stool doesn’t put enough pressure to on the glands to empty them, nice from stools do, the no scoot treats have a lot of fiber in them to firm up their stool.
