Hi everyone: My Raphael has had plugged anal glands twice in the past 3 months. Is this a common issue for Sphynx cats? It happened the first time in June. I noticed her licking her butt vigorously so I took her to the vet thinking it might be worms. Then this month I noticed her licking her butt more often and she turned quite nasty towards me, biting for no reason. I had her at the vet again today who squeezed the glands out. Unfortunately for my Raphael her glands aren't located at the anal opening which is normal for cats but her glands are further back and down. We had increased her fibre intake in June and have increased it again today. Has anyone else had this issue? She screams when the vet has her finger up her bum squeezing the glands. I'm sure it is very painful for her. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks all.
