What she is looking for:
For an article about diseases of the anal area for Your Dog magazine, the newsletter of the Tufts University veterinary school, journalist Edie Jarolim is looking to interview owners of dogs who:
a) have been trained to express their dog’s anal glands by their vet and do it regularly
b) have had their dog’s anal sacs removed because they got infected regularly
c) have had their dog successfully treated for perineal hernias
