Anal gland issues smell like season?

Can a bitch with problematic/blocked/infected anal glands smell like a bitch in season?

It won't smell like a season, but it will smell DIFFERENT and thus attract males to her.

Are you sure it is this? Ovarian cysts can mimic seasons..........

I'm not sure of anything, I'm not even entirely sure what the suspected "problem" is with the bitches anal glands. Cain was acting strangly at dog socialisation group, very intent scenting and searching for something specific. One of the trainers asked of he'd been anywhere near a bitch in season, which he hasn't, as she said he was acting like that's what he was looking for. He then took a lot of interest in a bitch, she objected and they had a spat. Due to Cain acting so unusally this week, the trainer spoke to the bitch's owner who said she thought the bitch had a problem with her anal glands. The trainer said this is peobably what Cain was reacting to and that problem anal glands can smell like a bitch in season to an unmated male. Strange, I've never heard such a thing and wondered if it was true.

I noticed when Star had an anal gland abscess that burst that Finn was very interested in her so much so that I had to separate them to give Star a break until the antibiotics kicked in. I certainly smells nice to dogs
