What Are Dog Anal Glands?
Dogs and cats have two glands near their rectum that are located at the five and seven o’clock position. These glands are similar to the skunk scent gland. Dr. Anna Coffin says that when everything is functioning normally, these glands release a scent after your pet defecates. This scent is a marker to other animals. If this process does not occur properly, the liquid begins to build up within the dog’s anal gland causing swelling, inflammation and pain to your pet.
Symptoms of Anal Gland Problems
- Scooting on their rear
- Excessive licking under the tail
- Leaking of anal gland material
- Foul odor (Fishy smell)
- Swelling in the anal region
- Straining to defecate
Dog anal glands that don’t naturally empty need to be expressed to empty them out. If manually expressing dog anal glands is not done, they can become infected, abscess and even rupture. Unfortunately, manual expression of the anal glands can be painful and sometimes causes more inflammation.
