ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Doctor Mark Wysocki of Avery Creek Pet Hospital answered viewer questions Sunday morning.

"How do you prevent a female cat from peeing outside the box? She does this when she seems to be mad or when it's her time to be in heat." -- Gina

"My 5-year-old Pomeranian mix has her anal glands expressed a few times a year by a groomer. What is the function of anal glands in dogs?" -- Jessie
