Kira, Pets

Anal Glands

Good afternoon world.

It’s been non-stop work since we got home from the vet, and I thought I’d take a little break to write a little. It’s a fabulous thing to be able to open up WordPress on my browser and not fear anyone reading behind my back. Or worse, drafting blog posts in Microsoft Word, which is exactly what I used to do back in those banking days.

So a trip to the vet was in order because Kira’s ass was just smelling absolutely foul. For days, weeks and months, we lived with the rotting fish smell, thinking it was an issue of her ass fur not drying properly after her showers. Oftentimes, I showered her up to 2-3 times a week, doubly soaping her ass, in a fervent bid to banish the stench.

For some reason, I decided to consult Google and it turned out to be i) the best decision of my life in recent memory, and ii) something about anal gland fluids being trapped, the same way pus is trapped in a gigantic pimple. The vet squeezed a whole bunch of  yellowish fluid out, and she’s back to smelling regular. Not perfect, but at least not like the wet market.
