He is very droopy around the eyes which could be a contributing factor in his case, the dog's individual physique will dictate the chances of success of the tuck. Call that clinic in Mississauga I mentioned to you earlier, or just pick up the phone book and start calling.. I don't think there is a need to drive 3h away for some thing routine like this.

Unfortunately no one will be able to tell you for certain how removing the gland will affect your dog in the future. All dogs are individuals so getting other people's stories on what happened with their dogs will really have no baring on your outcome. If you have tried the tuck and it has failed multiple times, your choices are to either learn to live with the prolapsed gland as is and keep it clean or simply do the removal. Then go from there. Some dogs do live normal lives with little effect after a removal so it's not all gloom and doom like your vet has led you to believe.
