Dogs with anal sac disease often experience a lot of discomfort and pain, especially in the anal area. Comforting the dog can help distract it from its condition, making it less likely to scratch or lick at the wound. However, owners should not forget that the best way to treat anal sac disease is by extracting the built up discharge and eliminating bacterial infections through antibiotics. Excess physical touching of the affected area is also not recommended as it will cause further irritation and pain.
