I'll have the vet do it or the groomer (who usually doesn't do it as we'll) as soon as you see your dogs scooting its usually time or overdue! Please stay on top of this so you don't have to go through this where anal glands are bursting. It's our responsibility to be aware of this stuff. Good luck Angelo & Jackie!

I use my bare hands to express my pups anal glands at least once a week. The smell should not be that bad.. I think that must be specific to your pup. Do you feed your pup human food from your dinner table? Some owners feed their pups from the dinner table. This not only spawns "beggars" but leads to overweight pups.

After spending $90 on two different occasions to simply walk into our vet's office and have them express our dog's anal glands in all of 30 seconds, the next time he was scooting (on a weekend when our vet's office wasn't open), we turned to YouTube and found a very helpful instructional video on how to do it ourselves. It is done completely externally. It is probably one of the grossest smells you'll ever experience so I highly suggest doing it outdoors or in the bathtub and wearing disposable latex gloves. (Also, if your Cav has the long butt feathers that our guy has, you'll definitely want to be sure to shampoo him/her very thoroughly afterward.) We've done this ourselves three or four times over the past couple years and the scooting has stopped immediately. And of course, it should go without saying, but if the liquid expressed looks suspect (e.g. bloody), if your dog seems to be in pain, if there appears to be an infection, or if the problem continues, you should not hesitate to go to your vet's office immediately. I just wanted to point out that expressing your dog's anal glands yourself is a cheap and easy option for dogs who are otherwise healthy but have simply had some irregular bowels that may have resulted in their anal glands not being expressed naturally.

Once the glands are flushed, regular draining has solved the issues with mine.  I always watch for scooting.  That is usually an indication we should make a special trip to the vet to have the glands expressed.

I don't know how large hers was, because I didn't notice it before it burst. The vet told me that sometimes, this can happen. She was given antibiotics and I applied a cold compress for a week or so. She recovered very quickly.

I was told that some dogs can sometimes have things get a little too thick back there to expel it naturally and this is what can happen. It is scary and she sure did let out a yelp when it happened. My poor girl was actually sleeping above my head on my bed when it did so....yeah...that was fun....for both of us. ;-)

Luckily she was wrapped in a towel. The vet knows her because we have had to bring her there before said it was an abscess involving her anal gland & although they will do everything they can, they cannot guarantee it wont come back. Antibiotics, flush & then stitches. Is this common in Cavs? Has anyone had a similar situation (anal gland or abscess' or both)? I will say this, right out of the gate, they asked if she has had seizures.
