A rag or tissue is held up to the anus and both sides of the anal area are squeezed. If the secretion is very pasty, this method may be inadequate to empty the sacs. If the glands are pressed against each other by pinching the rectal area together they will usually express. It is hard to get them as empty as the vet can by doing this rectally but most pets tolerate it better so it can be done more frequently. Don't push so hard that you rupture an anal sac, as this can lead to significant problems.
A lubricated gloved finger is inserted in the anus and the sac is squeezed between thumb & forefinger into a tissue held externally. The procedure is repeated on the opposite side.
NOTE: If the process of squeezing out of the glands is neglected, the glands sometimes become infected and surgery becomes necessary. This is seldom the case, but if needful at all, it must be entrusted to a skillful veterinary surgeon well experienced with Bulldog's anesthesia requirements.
If the sacs have been emptied adequately, the scooting should resolve in a couple of days.
Dude, my mum said people are sometimes hospitalized for colon tears from colonics. Since they're performed by technicians, and not doctors, the person performing te procedure doesn't claim any responsibility for anything they do wrong.
Fuck. I guess I'm stuck with my shitty colon. I don't wanna implode.
