Stinky butt

I take Rosie to our vet clinic every 6-8 weeks so that the vet Techs can trim her nails. They are pure black and I am terrified that if I cut to short I will hurt her. They grow very fast! About every 2-3 months I have them check her anal glands also. And often they need emptying. Jock never had issues but she is obviously a dog that will need to have it done on a regular basis. Not sure why, because she has lots of fiber in her diet daily. A tsp of pumpkin twice daily and lots of veggies in her meals. Anyone else have stinky butt dogs

Oh, yes.  Buffy and Ziggy both have to have their glands expressed regularly.  We have tried all the standard advice - more fiber in the diet, no table scraps, etc..  Doesn't make a difference.  Once a stinky butt, always a stinky butt.   :P

Never had this problem with dogs big or small. They take care of it themselves I think. Very thankful for this!

I did read somewhere sometime that once the glands are expressed by vet or whoever you have to have this done the rest of their lives. They never take care of themeselves. Can this be so does anyone know.

I know when my vet instead of the techs empty her anal glands, she actually uses a gloved finger inside the rectum to empty each individual gland. I have tried as per the video above with no results. Will have to have the techs show me as I must be doing something wrong. I am always scared of pressing to hard and rupturing something!
