Expressing the Anal Glands?
My GSD is currently with a foster home until I return in March. The Foster "parent" told me that they took him for a bath and had to have his Anal Glands Expressed. Now I had never heard of this until he mentioned it. And prior to my leaving, the vet never mentioned it. Of course, I have been gone for almost 10 months now so thinks happen. However, I believe they took him again this month and again, had his anal glands expressed.
I beleive they are doing all this in the best interest of the dog, but I was wondering if this is really something that needs to be done "monthly". I tried to do some research...google style research. But there was nothing I could find to say that it had to be a routine procedure. Do any of you have experience on this issue? This is not something I will be looking forward to.
