    I have gently squeezed at 4 and 8 positions and i dont see anything coming out or any yapping from Kaiser but he still occasionally does the butt boogie
    i DID have him on clavamox for almost a month and its a LOT LOT better but still at times he will dance-stool is NOT soft or runny
    and looking at his backside it doesnt look all red and infected like it did before the vet expressed him and gave me clavamox-if a groomer can do it, is that safe?
    my vet charges FIFTY BUCKS just for a cover charge to walk into the office.............
    thanks!

    Groomers can do it, but I would call your vet to see if you can come on just for that, maybe a tech can do it.

    Thanks for the answer! My vet wouldnt even consider it-which is why Im getting a new vet-the lady I board him with also runs a "salon" and will express him for $5!!! And she has done it a LOT so Im taking him tomorrow-Bath and express for $25!! I was thinking about getting her to show me how but for 5 bucks.........i might wanna stay away from that smell........

    I had hard time at first with Wilson when expressing his from the outside. He's only had to have them done once. Jack's easy to do now on the outside method now that I know exactly where his glands are. His are a bit further set back and I have to apply a good pinch squeeze to reach them that way.

    Glad you're changing vets too. Did he give a reason for not doing it?

    @ktcmojo, I have to take Vegas every 5 weeks or so, lately more often than that, Our vet charges $43 to walk in the door as well, BUT only charges $17 to do glands, you might want to call your vet and ask about this. And trust me, there is no chit chat or questions when the vet does them, it is strictly anal glands and out of there. Most of the time our vet does them, but a few times the vet tech has done them.

    Excellent article! I remember going to the vet with our old girl because I was worried about "stinky fish butt," only to learn that it is a GOOD thing. If you're smelling the fluid, then your dog probably doesn't have blocked glands. The smell can clear a space, though!

    filling an emptiness we didn't even know we had."
