When To Express

Some lucky dogs need their anal glands expressed regularly, but most others never need them expressed at all or maybe once or twice in a lifetime.   Every dog is different, and larger dogs tend to have fewer issues here.  Signs your dog might need expressing would be: licking of his rear end or dragging his butt across the floor.  Some dogs manage to express them on their own, but if licking and dragging doesn't quickly subside, it's best to have your vet check them out.  Expressing and cleaning the anal glands will not harm a dog in any way.  Many groomers do it as an included service, as it's not always a pleasant job to do at home.  Adding fiber and perhaps a good probiotic to your dog's diet and regular exercise can help keep the problem away.

Sorry, "butt" this photo was too perfect to pass up!

I Need You!

Chime in!  Let me know!  Tell me!  Shout it out!  I want to know what dog health topics are on the tops of your minds.  The possibilities are endless, so I'm looking for advice.  I LOVE to share what I know and learn about dog health and wellness.  I figure the more we know the better we are able to care for our furry family members...so give it to me!
