Our expert says:
An adenocarcinoma of the anal gland is unfortunately an aggressive malignant tumour. Treatment consists of surgical removal and the removal of Lymph nodes with metastasis, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. From a veterinary point of view I am more interested in the animals quality of life and this must be taken into consideration when considering the treatment of choice. Radiation therapy is probably only conducted at OP due to the problems associated wirth radiation. Chemotherapy and surgery are the only options available. The therapy of choice will depend on the severity of the problem. You need to discuss the matter with your vet.
