Yes, I think that's pretty normal. Usually their anal glands are expressed when they poop. So I figure it's a good sign to see a little drip afterwards.

The first time I heard about anal glands in dogs was about a week ago when I came across it in a TV program. A vet was saying that sometimes dogs scoot across the carpet because their glands are bothering them, and the best way to get rid of that, if that was the case, was to "express" the glands (or have a vet or groomer do this). Good to know, but kind of gross; I think I'd have to leave this to a professional. :pukey:

Yes, when Shiloh starts the Boot Scootin Boogie she goes to the vet to have her glands expressed!! I'll do most anything for Miss Shiloh, but sticking my fingers up her back end just isn't one of them!! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
