Expressing

I took my lab mix, Riley, to the vet this morning to have her anal glands expressed.  I asked the vet to show me so that I could do it at home.  I had watched some videos online and thought I had a pretty good idea of what they were going to do.  Well, I was wrong.  Expressing the glands is definitely a messy and smelly job that is meant for the vets office.  They did one gland and I did the other, so I actually know how to do it now, but I'm not sure I want to continue doing it at home.  Letting them do it is worth the $19 fee. Plus they have the supply of gloves, lube, and sanitizer required.
