Re: Anal Gland
Riley has anal gland problems bad. Not infected, they just don't release on their own. They're supposed to release when they go potty, but on some dogs because of the positioning of the glands and other things, they don't. We were taking him to the vet to have it done when we smelled it, but that got expensive, so the vet taught us how and so now we are supposed to do it every 1 1/2 weeks. He said no more often than that because it can irritate their butt. We have it down to a science. We do it outside. Gloves, vaseline, wet wipes, and follow that with a shot of Timmy Holedigger and it all goes away!
