Gland expression

I know some dogs (especially little breeds) have issues with this. But what is the chance that all 3 of mine do?! Tebow had his anal glands expressed today and immediately home to a bath and the other 2 are tomorrow. (I just can't bring myself to do that myself. For 1, I'm afraid I'll hurt them. For 2, I know I'd gag and want to hurl.) Tebow's right one was pretty full and took some time to express. Poor baby. I wonder if full glands feel to them like constipation feels to us.

Kallie was my anal issue baby. I expressed her glands every bath and she never minded so I'm thinking it must have felt good to rid that area of that yuck. The other 4 never had issues........thank goddess since I always did it myself.

You are a brave lady with a strong stomach. LOL. Even the smell home (after supposed smell good remover sprayed on them at the vet) drives me nuts and it requires an immediate bath. Ollie was banned outside with hubby today until I finished with Bentley's bath.
