While I was here on the computer I heard this licking sound. I looked back and Lily was licking Gibbs butt (I'm talking under the tail and all). :unsure: I of course made her stop. I then smelled this HORRENDOUS (sp?) smell, strongly smelling of fish. Could Lily have expressed Gibbs anal glands or something?

Yuck,

Chances are Lily just kicked up the smell. I'd make an appt. with the Vet to have Gibb's anals expressed internally. When Stickers gets very full, sometimes she leaks what I call "butt juice" :eek: :eek: Sorry for being so gross. Rusty will go over and try to lick it! YUCK!

When I was there with him on Friday for his intestinal problems they said his glands were empty (they had to go in there to do a fecal)... hmm...

Francis and I are old hands at anal gland expressing. I find that if I add more fiber to his diet (in our case, canned unsweetened pumpkin) I have to express far less frequently.
