you can have your vet do it, I have always done my own dogs, working at a groomer shop helped a lot, lol, I do my guys once every two months, but I am sure it doesn't need to be doen that much, I just feel theris if they are full I release them if not I leave them alone, lol. Good luck

I heard it depends on the dog and some it happens naturally and others have issues. do you have to do it? My pup is 2 and has never had it done, I dont think. Do you have to do it? or does your dog have a problem that it isnt released naturally and you ahve to do it every 2 months?

i HIGHLY advise that if you have not done it before to have your vet do it.
sometimes you can rupture an anal gland if there too full and wont express.

hope this helps

I do my own dogs while they're in the tub, because I also work at a grooming place and have seen it done by our spa techs. I asked them to show me how to do it, and I have a fair success ratio. For what that's worth, LOL.

My dog has this often and PETCO does it.and once they have it they usually need a bath because the smell is bad.so when it happens my dog skids her but on rug or concrete she goes to PETCO bath and anal glands is done for under 40 bucks

They say its different with every dog.my pit is white and I know she has it also when she gets yellow stains on the bum bum.people also say it can get really bad if not drained and lead to surgery.but the smell is so potent that once they have it and you encounter it you will know that its that right away

40 bucks to express anal glands, holy cow Geo, my vet only charges 8 bucks, not that much but if I had to pay 40 to do it I am glad I can do it myself, lol
