Guess what I learned to do today?
My vet taught me how to express Jasper's Anal Glands! LOL. where else could I crow about this. My vet has moved and is much harder to get to for a 5 minute visit. Jasper's AG's are in the wrong place and do not express on their own, so his need expressing every 4-6 weeks, from the inside, so I have been afraid to try. But with her coaxing and teaching I did it. And I can't believe I waited so long.
Those of you who have dogs with AG issues than do need frequent expressing, I would encourage you to have your vet teach you, it is not that bad! and imagine being able to do it right before you bathe your dog? everything nice and clean and down the drain.
I also want to say, if your dog does NOT have an AG issue, there is no need to know this, as expressing frequently can lead to having to express more and more.
