Dog Anal Gland Expression

One of the less desirable but commonly encountered problems in many canines is impacted anal glands. These glands can become infected and can be a seriously uncomfortable experience for your dog. Thankfully, the anal gland impaction can be treated by expressing them. Some dogs can be more prone to anal gland issues than others, often requiring repeated expressions throughout their life. Signs that your dog may be suffering from an anal gland issue could be scooting, contents dripping from their anus or an unpleasant odour. If you are concerned that your dog may require an anal gland expression our medical professionals can help.
