Nails & Glands…Such Fun…Not!

I took Riley to the vet’s office today for a nail trim and an anal gland squeezing.  Lots of fun…or not.  She weighs 54 pounds, so is good on that front.  Once again, they told me her nails were already short (it’s been like 2 months since she had them trimmed last) but that they trimmed the tips off anyway.

Now onto the anal glands…  I’ve tried to empty them before but can’t seem to get the procedure down.  I’ve even watched videos online about how to do it but I’m still unable to do it.  The tech told me that her glands were VERY full but that all the fluid looked normal.  I told her I can’t for the life of me get them squeezed out myself and she told me they could show me next time.  Phew.  They said Riley was a good girl in back, so that’s another “Phew!”

Riley’s all nice and pretty to go to the nursing home again Friday!  I’m looking forward to going and I’m sure she’ll be more than happy to go.  Sorry for the nastiness of the post!

Riley loves hearing from her friends!
