I HATE this subject. .. that smell is something that you'll never forget

Zulu leaks a bit every now and again, but usually in bed too.

Just make sure you give his butt a clean with some warm water or the smell will stay on him and will upset him

The first time it happened i was like WTH And when i took him to the vet and he actually emptied them manulaly. . .well. .. i was almost sick there and then it was GROSS. . .dont ever do it yourself. . .you'll have nightmares and smell forever

IF you are daring enough to do it yourself, BE SURE to wear rubber gloves and DONT breathe through your nose! I did it bare handed one time to one of my pugs, and I had that dead fish smell on my hand for DAYS UGH it was AWFUL!

YUCK the first time I took Luke to the vet to have them squeezed, the vet said he would show me how to do it so I could DIY. He showed me and the gland squished all over me!! IT was disgusting

Since we switched to raw we never have to have them done now. Another thing that helps is 100% pure canned pumpkin.

Leia's however....also express when she is sleeping. We use vinegar and water or Nature's Miracle to clean the spots. You can use warm vinegar and water on them to clean too to get rid of the smell of their fur. She gets really embarrased when it happens and often she tries to clean the spot herself.

Newt seems to do this only IN THE BED!!!!!! LMAO ....... I dont mean to laugh but ..... I get up strip the bed and wash the sheets, no matter what time it is! I wonder if its because they have nightmares? As a Dog groomer I used to have to do this "task"... they dont like you much after you release them for them! lol....... Normally if things go right they do this when they have their poop.... and I have had Newts Checked before........ I think its like once in a blue moon while sleeping it happens.... If you do this "release them" make sure you do it right so there is no damage! Bless your heart!
