There is info on the net regarding anal glands, but my best teacher was my vet.

Maggie has anal gland problems, and I took her to be emptied several times at the vet before I felt competent to do it myself. Due to the large amount of nerve endings around the anus, it can be very uncomfortable to milk the glands. Maggie hates it, so I learned to do it at home so she wouldn't always associate the vet with pain (which she already does /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif )

It is very smelly also, so don't feel bad if you're not comfortable doing it yourself right away. I do it in the bathtub, then wash her booty immediately. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
