    I'm with Anne on this one.

    There is no way I'm going to try to squeeze anal sacs on my bitch. I'm not even entirely sure where their openings are. And I'm not putting a finger up Frosty's bum either - for which I'm sure she is grateful. I'm more than happy to pay someone else to do it at our local vet's if it ever needs doing, and if it gets so it needs doing every month, I'll pay to have them removed. This happened with one of our previous dogs, and she only lived a year or so after that. Another one of our dogs - I don't remember her ever needing assistance with her glands.

    I HAD to do it on my cat (the one that has been pts). He ate a normal cat diet, but continuously would have blocked anal glands and needing antibiotics. I have to say...I have not done it on my dogs here and honestly...I don't think I want to

    I was about the ask if big dogs need this done but Hyacinth answered the question for me . My mate does it to her poodle.

    Okay Demi, thread is in the health section (sorry don't know how to post a linky).

    Can you go have a look-see and tell us what you think, as my intention for the thread was very much aimed at those such as yourself, so you can organise a basic "starter pack", which can then be added to when/if necessary.

    The dog that never needed it as far as I know - was an Australian Terrier.

    The other dog was a kelpie heeler cross - that ended up needing being done every month, when mum decided a more permanent fix was required. Note - the vet was quite happy to keep doing it every month, it wasn't till we started asking "what else can be done?" that other options were offered.

    I'm not sure the need or lack of need has anything to do with the size of dog.
