Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Aristotle. The typical signs of a dog needing their anal glands expressed is when they start to scoot or lick their back side. Typically if a dog isn't showing these signs, then they aren't needing their anal glands expressed. My own dog is 14 years old and I've never had to express hers. Just because they expressed them and the material was pasty doesn't mean it wasn't being expressed with her normal defecations and such.
