• My male and female schnauzers’ anal glands need expressing every week or two. What are my options?

    Hi Gwendolyn,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. Needing expression that often is rare and there can be an underlying issue that is causing this. If so addressing the problem may be the best thing for this. If this is normal your vet may be able to teach you how to express the glands.
