Everything you need to know about those nasty anal glands | petMD
If the anal glands aren't functioning correctly, they can cause discomfort and even infection. I'd like to share with you an easy way to help express dog anal.
Anal sacs, or anal glands, carry some smelly fluid and occasionally need to be expressed, or emptied. Many dogs express them by themselves every time they.
How to Express Your Dog's Anal Gland from the Outside
Description:Each time your dog has a bowel movement the fluid in the anal sacs should be expressed as the feces passes out. In some cases these glands will become infected or obstructed, and many dogs will have recurring problems with their anal glands. The best way to prevent infection and impaction is to manually express the anal glands. Some people are more comfortable having this done at a veterinary clinic but you can also learn how to do it at your home. Stand or kneel behind your dog while your dog is standing up on all fours and your partner is gently but firmly restraining your dog. Some anal glands will be firm while others will be more malleable if they are not as full.
