    Jon you haven't lost any credibility with me! I am glad you care enough about your pup to take care of this...you are right, if you are bathing them, no big deal, just part of the clean up.

    I just hope that all the other folks who can't bring themselves to do it themselves, have good vets who will check and make sure their dogs/cats aren't getting bound up...as I said it can be a very expensive, and nasty mess when that happens. It can actually be fatal in some cases, though admittedly those are fairly rare.

    Sorry to bring back this wonderful topic, but...

    I just got back from the vet, my Chihuahua had one gland that abcessed, and then ruptured (where's the 'gagging' smilie when you need it!)

    He had been licking his butt a lot all week, and when I checked, I thought his a-hole was stretched open three times normal size. Turns out it was the ruptured gland I saw.

    He didn't need surgery luckily, but the whole visit and medications cost $350!

    I think I'll start bringing him in to get that procedure done every few months now.

    Here's a drawing of what they look like, look away now if you're squeamish!

    I know my Mom used to do that to our dog, and always came out gagging. BUT, at least I got a new sig line for EF! :D

    My dad is a vet and this is actually not an uncommon thing at all. Some dogs have problems expressing them or have very active glands, and many have little problem at all.

    When my parents groom dogs at our clinic, it is usually done with the bath after the haircut. You know it goes with the 3 S's... Shower, Shave, and well you know. ;)
