You don't do this unless the dog has problems with their Anal Glands.
The only dog that I had problems with was Cheyenne when she was younger and having problems with food. I told the Vet that Cheyenne liked to fight off her back and that she was sorta like a street fighter so make sure she had enough help.. Well Cheyenne launched a Vet tech with her back leg backwards into a wall. I said I was sorry, but the Vet actually thought it was funny, because the Tech said no problem I can hold her. My Vet knows if I tell her something it is for a reason.
interesting, never done this either, Meeka was never even fed raw, but we/my husband had her for 12 years and never did this. i asked one of my friends who has a 10 yr old dog and she has never done this either.
?? i never noticied any smell or seeping? and she slept in the bed!
