    oh..the poor baby!!!! Honestly, I did not know that something could get stuck in that gland, if it were swallowed. Yuck!
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    aggghhhh poor baby. I am so glad the vet was able to get it out. Vegas needs some extra love (hug) today. I have to bully mouth fish daily as well. I am certain I don't get everything

    @KMARINO i am not familiar with this particular affliction with the anal gland (sans rock, lol), what should i look out for or pay attention to in case this happens to Bear? Does it happen to all bullies or is it connected with another ailment?

    OMG! Poor Vegas! That is awful! I have never had to have that done for Silva but as a nurse I have had to do some pretty gross things that would probably make you !!!

    @mammyglicks Some dogs never need it, some need it regularly like Vegas and Sam. It's not a breed specific thing, my mother-in-law's doxies needed it but not her labs. Some dogs are able to express everything from there anal glands when they poop, some don't. The ones they don't need to have them expressed, how often depends on the dog. I know Cali~jenns pug Mugsy needs it done as often as Sam and Vegas. I discovered it needing to be done because like Vegas he started scooting his butt on the floor. Thats how my mother-in-law knows her doxie Doodle is due, she starts dragging her booty on the carpet.

    Oh @mammyglicks not always is there a sign of needing it done either. My boys have never done any kind of boot scoot or anything else to show they needed it so you may just wanna have them check the next time you go to the vets, that would be the best way to know for sure if they are empty or full.
    Poor Vegas, I can imagine how much that poor rock must have been hurting in there. Hope getting it out didnt do too much damage for him either. Now he will be even more terrified the next time he gets poked. Cutty has always screamed like a girl when he has gone, breaks my heart. Mugsy takes it like a champ. haha

    @cali~jenn so is it a fluid filled gland or the doggies just don't evacuate fully like they are impacted?

    It is a fluid. Not their poo but a poo smelly fluid. All dogs have it but bigger dogs can naturally express their glands when they poo. Smaller ones need to have them done for them and I guess bullies are still on the smaller side of dogs in that sense.
