Do Field Springer Spaniels have problems with Anal Glands?
Do Field Springers have problems with Anal Glands?
We are about to bring back into our family a Springer. We had a Show English Springer Female. which we loved and she was every part of our family.
It has taken 5 years to get over her after her death.
There were 2 things we did have issues with
She was a Show Springer , we had hair everywhere. Does the Field springer have less Hair than show? Are we going to have hair everywhere?
The big issue was her anal glands. We had to drain them regular and the odor was well more than we could handle some times. lol.
Does a field spaniel have issues with anal glands like the show?
What is the big difference between the two?
Thanks so much our family is excited to get a springer back into the house but we want to also want to head off 2 areas that we had issues.Hair & odor smells
Thank youFrom Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com
I think it really depends on both, Ihave a field line Springer, and my mum has a show line springer and neither have anal gland issues.
The biggest difference between the two is the size, field springers are smaller and more agile and I would argue more hardy as they are bred to just keep going.
Hope that helps you out
