Subject: [ferrethealth] Anal gland problems
To: fhl <>

The warm bottom soaks really are helping with Pivot's anal gland
problems. Now instead of discharging multiple times a day she
typically goes about a week and then if she does it again rapidly
after the first discharge we soak her bottom again to help the glands
drain. She is certain that it is awful despite the kisses, of
course, but she is more comfy herself and she's more nasally comfy for
others who are around. We'll see how long this works. Hey, if it
works forever her anal glands won't get infected and won't need surgery.

Thanks to everyone who sent suggestions, especially this one.
