How To Express Anal Glands at Home Expressing your dogs anal glands at home can be challenging and will most likely take two people, one person to hold the dog and one to express the glands. You should perform the procedure outside or on a hard surface that is easily cleaned as fluids inside the glands can have a very strong odor.
To help the anal glands to function properly, dogs need to consume the right amounts of fiber. Sadly, due to a lack of good fiber in the average canine diet, many dogs have to have their anal glands expressed manually meaning the vet or groomer squeezes them by hand to get the fluid out.
Sometimes our beloved pets require more than just love& attention. Expressing your dog's anal glands is a simple& painless way to help them stay healthy.
