Ok, I just spent an interesting, if totally gross, half hour reading up about anal glands and expressing them. Jenna left a yucky, fishy deposit this morning (thankfully on the tiles) so I am wondering if it might be diet related. At the moment she gets 3 chicken necks twice a week, usually for breakfast and a brisket bone about once every 2 weeks ( I'm still terrified of giving her bones). Otherwise she has a premium dry food, her poos are soild so not sure why she had this 'leak'. Maybe it's a one off, sure hope so.
On one post i read, they said if you feed nothing but chicken wings for 2 days a week there should be no problem with the pesky glands. What do you all think? If I was to feed chicken wings only how many do you think I should give each day. Jenna is 17kg (projected adult weight about 20kgs).
Do any of you express you dogs anal glands yourself, can't say I'm too keen to do that and will wait and see if this becomes a regular problem. I do remember Holly used to do this about once every 3 months or so but this is the first time Jenna has done it.
Sorry for bringing up such a gross subject.
Right oh, I'm off for lunch now
