From my own personal experience from when Jessie was 10-18 months old it was more then AWFUL!How do you know if it's a problem? Is there a discharge? A smell? Sorry, I really am new to this and just trying to educate myself (and prepare myself- lol)
Trust me you wouldnt want to with the awful awful smell unless you have a iron stomach and do you want to associate you doing that to your dog? dogs dont like to associate such unpleasant experiences with the owner surely? Jessie sure wouldnt let me do hers and i cant blame her i probably be more traumatised then her and puke alot.I have never had a problem with this. If I did, I would express the anal glands at home.
