The vet who does the teeth cleaning was SUPPOSED to call me yesterday with a quote but never did. We're beginning our tourist season now so ( impossible to drive at times) they are probably slammed with business. I will call back today. Thanks everyone.
    What part of Fl do you live in? I live in Bradenton and the roads are full here too with all the snow birds.??

    Hi and Thanks I USED to live over there in Sarasota for 30 years but now I am in Delray Beach which is the East Coast. I know there is a good bulldog vet in Sarasota and also north of you near Lakeland.

    I've worked for two vets so I got really good at expressing anal glands. Fortunately our groomer includes it in the cost of Belle's bath so I won't have to worry about it. It's not hard to do...it just really stinks and not something I would want to do in my house. If you ever get glands that are very hard or difficult to express make sure you let a vet take a look. Sometimes they can get infected and it's not something you want to deal with on your own.
