Get a surgical mask, it will help with the odor.

Wear gloves and do it in the bathroom over a sink or bathtub. Make sure your dog is comfy and press near the anus and squeeze like you would a zit when you are trying to just pop it with out digging into your skin.

If you do it more often then not its not that bad. Also, make sure to bathe them with warm water a few times a week down there and mild soap. it will help with the buildup as well.First off, I think this issue is SO nasty, because, I FEEL YOUR PAIN!!! *lol*

It''s a dog''s last line of defense if he''s being attacked - he''ll roll on his back, pee and defecate and express his anal glands to beg the attacker not to hurt him anymore.

Better to let the vet do it if you''re not sure of your technique. Most dogs would probably be ok having them done every six months. If you see the dog "scooting" his butt on the floor, take him in right away. Impactions are painful and can require surgery to treat.Yeah that stuff smells nasty!

One of mine was having a problem with this. She is 50 lbs and I started giving her a Metamucil capsule every day. The fiber makes the stool bulkier. The bulkier stool makes the anal glands work on their own. She no longer has a problem with the glands.If your dogs are not dragging their butts on the carpet or the grass, then leave them alone.

all4pawpawsThu, 29 Sep 2011 21:29:45 +0000http://dogsnutrition.org/dog-has-skin-problem-with-hair-loss/#comment-1018Actually this sounds exactly like demodex mange it''s non contagious. What it is is that all dogs have mites on their skin. When something stresses them or weakens their immune systems the mites attack. This causes the open sores and hair loss. You would need to take your dog in for a skin scraping at the vet it''s around $ 30 then they can diagnose for demodex or scabies. It''s quick but yes the scraping hurts I hate watching my rescues go through this. It can also get hot. I''ve noticed a lot of my pit sharpei mixes get demodex. Once diagnosed treatment is a mitabin dip...like a flea dip...needs to be done every 10 days til it looks good...dips are around $ 40 each but well worth it. Good luck. You can also give your dog benadryl and dont worry its safe call your vet for dosage.Actually this sounds exactly like demodex mange it’s non contagious.

RiverThu, 29 Sep 2011 21:19:07 +0000http://dogsnutrition.org/dog-has-skin-problem-with-hair-loss/#comment-1017Sounds like an allergy. It could be to fleas, fly bites or even grass and pollen.

My Rat terrier is allergic to grass and pollen and we use a combination of Dermacton cream and spray to keep it under control. Spring and summer is the worst time of year for it. Dermacton is great and prevents him from needing benadryl which made him groggy and away from steroid based creams.

I get mine online from here:

I am assuming she is on a flea treatment - though, but fleas can still bite before the products kill them and cause problems if your dog is allergic.Sounds like an allergy. It could be to fleas, fly bites or even grass and pollen.

I wouldn'' bathe her more than once every six months - that definitely affects the skin. She could easily have allergies to food or grass. I''d try a canned food like Nutro Lamb & Rice. It has no "by products" unlike the high-priced Eukanuba. Many dogs (and some humans) are allergic to wheat and the preservatives in dry foods. I''d keep her inside on a tile or wood floor as much as possible and go for leash walks in the street - see if that helps. If you can afford it, take her to an allergy specialist. My fried has Australian shepherds - she got a profile from the allergist showing that one of her dogs is allergic to so many things that she had to be put to sleep. (The poor dog was chewing herself raw 24/7.) Good luck!Sounds like you’ve done a lot of things right so far. I wouldn’ bathe her more than once every six months – that definitely affects the skin.

anyhow, in the past my dog use to have also kinda dry hair, flaky, not smelly but not smooth clear hair, so we changed dog food to using Eukanuba, believe it or not, but it immediatly changed her tone of hair. i dont know if that woudl serve for odors, but if it serves for hair, there is no reason why it wouldnt help for odors since it all departs from the dog''s skin.

try to giong to your nearest Petco and sign in. i know eukanuba is the most expensive brand out of all, but its worth or else i would have told you to not even try it, but its worth trust me. so in petco usually when you sign up every time you buy a bag of dog food it gets counted and on your 10th purchase you get a free bag. a good way to save 50 bucks.
