Dogs also "express" their anal sacs when they are scared, which is perfectly normal, if a bit odorous.

Anal gland secretions have a distinct smell that many people describe as fishy.

If your dog smells like fish, chances are there may be something going on with her anal glands.

Safe: Some Vegetables.

Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.

Even a plain baked potato is OK.

Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
