    Well one way to find out............... AND.... don't make a Vet appointment, Our VET Tech does them. I don't have to pay an office visit or vet visit. Tell the receptionist you want to have anal glands done. Just FYI. Cost us $17.00 and takes about 60 seconds. Then they spray his butt with deodorant and were out the door. Joe has learned to do them himself thanks to JeanieCo's Video, but there are times even he can't get them so I still have to take Vegas in.

    I called a groomer, I'm going to see if they can do them. It's about 15, instead of going to the vet. I don't think I wanna approach doing them myself.

    It's the dog smell metallic, like blood smells. My wife learned how to express glands and does them every other month. His vet charges $37 each time to do them and we got sick of paying for it. It's like popping a blister or a pimple, @JeannieCO did an article on how to do it but I got the techs at the vet to show her how, sorta like an anal gland seminar lol. They were happy to do it.

    Make SURE the groomer does INTERNAL, no groomer's here do internal, just external. Vegas needs INTERNAL expression. That is why the Vet Tech does them

    Unless it's a stink bug (fishy) smell I doubt it's the anal glands. I know when Emma has gets an acne pimple and I pop it it has that exact smell you mention (metally). Have you looked between his toes? I have no idea but that he has a acne somewhere.

    Nothing between his toes

    Jeannie, Vegas has never smelled "fishy" it does have a distinct odor but not fishy. Not poop either. Just a funky smell!

    That's what i was thinking of doing, taking him and having them show me how to do it. I am pretty cool with my vet and his assistant is in my bible study so they may be nice enough to just show me.

    Really. How about a metallic smell then? Now it's Jack that I have to do all the time (well every 4 weeks or so) but he smells like a stink bug. I wonder if to others that a stink bug smell could be the metal/iron smell too?
