Default Bartholomew and the Boot Scoot...

So Bartholomew had been doing the boot scoot for a couple days and I noticed the tell-tale fishy smell on his bottom that told me he probably needed to have his anal gland(s) expressed. So... I took him to the bathroom and squeezed and out came that nasty fluid, so I think he should be okay now.

My question is, how long until he stops scooting? I had done this once with Joey when he was much younger. However, he wasn't scooting that I can recall. I just could clearly see that one of the glands was inpacted so, I took him to the bathroom and expressed it and he hasn't had any problems since.

I did Bartholomew's just last night, but I noticed he was scooting again this morning. So, I was wondering if there was usually a little time until that stopped?

You may not have gotten all of it? If that doesnt solve the scooting then I would have him checked for worms.
