  • I did not know this was something we could do ourselves! Please tell me how. I have a Jack Russell and their anal glands need to be expressed often and it is expensive!

  • What does that do?
    I obviously have not so...
    That must make me a bad dog owner?

  • No, but my aunt's stepson works at a vet's office and has done it for her dog a few times. He comes to the house for her.

  • I did on all my other dogs, but the one i have now will not let me. So about once a month, I will take her to the groomer and get them to.

  • What does that do? Don't have a dog, and have never heard of that before. What's the reason for it?

  • I saw that on a show called Dirty Jobs! I had never heard of such a thing. And no, I do not, nor will I ever. I'll leave that to the groomers and the vets, thank you very much...LOL.
