Hi there,
Calista seems to have an ongoing issue with her anal sacs... she is only 11 months and has had to have them emptied several times already.
She has a horrid habit of getting on me (she likes to sit on my chest... haha) and skunking me!!! UGH!
Any thoughts and ideas on how to help her problem would be wonderful!!

Food wise...
She is on Royal Canin Chihuahua 28 pellets
mixed daily with 2 parts beef or chicken to 8 parts pellets
Fresh Water
Antos Vegetarian chews (crocs, hedgehogs etc)

I have never heard of a pup that emptied the anal sacs when NOT scared, or mad. I would ask the vet about this. Those sacs are like being skunked! I had a little shepard mix that did that every time she went to the vet. After awhile, he just brought his spray can with him when he came in! Memories! Good luck. I don't know whether changing food might help? Maybe some of the frozen or dehydrated raw food would be better. Sue

It is weird... sometimes she just does it for no reason at all... this morning, she had been bothering at me to pick her up (I was trying to work on something at the computer) I gave in and picked her up so I would work one-handed, and 2 mins after she was in my arm, she let them go... I had to have a shower and change. agh!
