|Yes, the vet showed us how to do an internal anal gland expression. It isn't hard, but a little gross. Still poor little Auda has a lot of problems, so we go for it.
Before Auda had his abscess, we had no idea he was having problems. No scooting, no noticeable smell but he was having problems and when the abscess broke open, it was a terrible mess, blood, pus and a huge opening in Auda's back side. (It looked like someone had tore him a new one)
It was infected, he had to be on antibiotics for a week before they did surgery to clean up the wound, clean it out and stitch it. Auda was very sick, I wish I had known to check his glands before it happened. It would have saved Auda a lot of pain and a huge vet bill as well.
