Vile.
Just vile.

Have baby wiped the stain to not much effect, I'm going to have to bring out the big guns and put it in the washing machine aren't i?
Hope it doesn't get damaged sad

Thought raw fed dogs never got problems with their glands!
Lies.... angry

What does gland fluid look like?

It's not what it looks like, it's how it smells!! hmm and yes, I thought tht about raw fed dogs too, but apparently it varies dog by dog, I got one who still has occasional 'issues', great!

Ps thankfully it does seem to wash out ok

I have had worse. Camper dog curled up on the sofa next to me, big dog so he is touching my hip. I feel a warm sensation and thought he had farted.....no. Anal gland fluid gone through my trousers and pants and is on my skin!

Long shower, exfoliating glove and lots of shower gel. BOAK

A couple of millilitres of that fluid can stink out a room.

I think you will probably have to cut your losses and move house. That stuff is evil

oh, I didn't know this could happen. Oh how awful. Please say this doesn't happen with every dog and that mine are special and that this will never ever happen. I hope you find some great cleaners and a good breeze of fresh air!

Put a good dose of Simple Solution on it before you wash it. Or just burn it...

Does is smell like rotten fish?! If so think same problem here couldn't invite people for a day or two such an offensive I've not showered for two months type smell.

It smelt...kind of like fish mixed with sweaty, smelly arse.

I washed it anyway and there's no hint of fishy sweaty arse now!

Don't clean your anal glands on the sofa is a house rule here.

<weeps>

Hehehe, it is quite a pong. Yes, very fishy. And yes, a little bit goes a long way. My male terrier used to do it a lot when I picked him up. That action or position seemed to make them release.
