Well when Trig was a baby he was always scooting so I expressed his anal glands and the problem stopped. Since then I've always just done it at bath time, which is about once a month, because according to our vet, usually once you start, they continue to need to have it done . It really doesn't bug me, he's in the bath, it washes away immediately, then I soap and shampoo him up Anyway...like, a LOT comes out each time I do it. It is clear/healthy fluid from what I understand, but I swear probably like a teaspoon comes out...? Does anyone know if that's normal? He is such a little brat too hahaha he gets this super pleased look on his face after I've done it, like it was a huuuuge relief lol. No scooting whatsoever since we started doing it at bath time, either, so that's good.
