Anal Gland Expressing | Dog Owner Ratings | RightPet

Anal glands (anal sacs) are two glands on either side of a dog's (and every carnivore animal's) anus. Anal glands are used to release a smelly liquid which can be used to mark territory.

When a dog defecates, the firm stool squeezes out some However, if the dog's diet lacks enough fiber and the stool is too soft, or if the anal gland ducts become impacted or infected, the anal gland liquid can be stuck in the gland, and can produce a lot of pain and discomfort.

Anal gland expression involves squeezing the glands to release built-up fluid.
