Referral Friday is part of a series inspired by John Jantsch's Make-a-Referral Week. For more about that, and loads more referrals for everything from cobblers to coaches to gee-tar teachers, start here. Pass it on, baby!
If you're a hard-core, DIY-type of dog owner, you can watch an instructional video on how to express your dog's anal glands here.
If you're not, and you're lucky enough to live in Los Angeles, you can take your beloved pooch for a grooming at Silver Lake's own Catts & Doggs, where, for the low, low price of something-per-pound (and really, when you're talking expressing anal glands, any price starts to seem low, economy be damned), they will turn your Fifi or Fido into a clean-smelling, silky-coated, fuzzbuddle of huggability. With hygienically drained anal glands!
The beloved Arno J. McScruff (see photo above) weighs in at about 40 lbs., and the full fluff-'n'-puff ('n', y'know, ETCETERA), ran $50 cheep. And he is a wiry dude, and afterwards? As silky as a Breck girl (albeit a lot less happy about it. What is it with dogs and stank?)
Catts & Doggs also sports a delightful array of adorable toys, collars and other spoiled-pet accoutrements, as well as a carefully selected assortment of healthy, high-end pet foods. And the people are nice, and they give humans free candy quite often, which is also nice, and the place smells good, which is nicest of all. I mean, have you been to a PetSmart? Yuck!
