Anal Gland Expression

Anal glands are two sacs just slightly interior and on both sides of the rectum. They are designed to leave a distinctive scent behind every time a pet defecates as a form of identification. Some petís glands are unable to clean out naturally. If they are not naturally expressed they fill up and become very uncomfortable for your pet and may result in an infection. Symptoms include frequent licking of their anal area and scooting on carpet to try to alleviate the discomfort. Expressing anal glands is a simple procedure. Dr. Winter can perform this in a matter of minutes and it can quickly provide relief for your pet.
