  1. I found the pod cast interesting.
    I have owned pets for 59 years of life, inclusive of dogs, cats & horses. I have never had to express any glands. I am a very well informed pet owner.
    However, if a not so well informed pet owner, who might see there dog rub there bum on the carpet…at least my dogs, do this after having a loose stool, if I did not wipe my dogs bum after & immediately. The mention of carpet bum rubbing MIGHT be miss-leading to uneducated pet owners.
    Just a suggestion to not very well educated dog/cat owner.
    Happy & Healthy Pet owner,

    helpful information, nice to know the difference between how the groomers and vets express the glands, I did not know that. I was looking for some information on how to prevent them from needed expressed in the first place, so now I will be researching on how to increase fiber intake. Thanks.
