HELP !!! (smelly tush)LOL

Postby Brad-and-Brodix » Wed Mar 11, 2009 11:19 am

Embarrasing subject but we need some help here. For the past few days, Brodix has had a horrible smell coming from his rear. It doesn't happen until later in the evening and its AWFUL...He clears the room !!!
He has no odor in the mornings or daytime, thats what is confusing to me. I know it could possibly be his glands, but is this the was they do when they have a problem ???
I feel terrible cause the poor fellow doesn't know why we are running from him. :frown: :oops: :frown:

Thanks guys

Take him to the vet and have his anal glands expressed.

Thats what I was thinking it was, but wasn't sure if it would go away like it does. So this is nothing I can do at home huh? :crybaby: :bowdown:

if its a chronic problem, you can ask your vet to show you how and do it yourself, its pretty gross but if you dont mind its worth it to know how!

You can, but it's preferable to have a vet do it and show you how.

Eeew anal glands. It CAN be done at home. I had my vet show me how, and after doing it once or twice, I decided it was worth the $$ to pay the vet to do it.

Bleeechkk!

Not to steal the post, it's still on topic . . .

Why do some dogs have issues with their anal glands and some don't? I've never had to deal with it, and I don't know much behind what goes on with them.

I don't know, but Khan releases his in bed from time to time :yucky:

Nothing like waking up to a snuffling dog and unbelievable stench :oops:

Size of dog and diet, I'm sure.
Small dogs have a harder time, I think, expressing them.
Diets high in fiber can help.

I'd either learn how to do it yourself or take him to a groomer and have it done.

I honestly can't believe people take dogs to the vet's for A.G. expression... a groomer can do it just as well, probably charge less, and they'll bathe the dog so the A.G. stink doesn't just stay on their fur where it lands!

Eww - and I feel your pain! Is it possible to have leaking glands that do not need to be expressed? A few times a week, Ruby gets 'the butt stink' and I wipe her butt and try to squeeze (yuk) BUT have never felt any compacted lumps or gotten any goo.... Poor Ruby will just stop and wait for me to catch up to her with a tissue when I say, "eww, you have stinky butt smell" LOL (I ALWAYS give her a treat after messing around back there!!!)

There is nothing more rewarding in life than to snuggle up on the couch with your dog only for him to release (what we like to refer to in our home as donkey juice) right on your new pair of jeans. I thought it was water at first and tried to wipe it off with my hand.... BAD, BAD, BAD mistake, lol.

x2! I haven't had to deal with this issue yet and we've had Molly for over 1.5 yrs now – I keep on the lookout for excessive butt scooting and take a whiff of her back end every so often but nothing. I've read the posts about how they get impacted if they're not expressed so I'm a little worried...
