Unfortunately, animals cannot verbally communicate their pain to us. Anal gland disease can be very painful for your pup, if you attempt to massage or pet them they could respond aggressively. Avoid touching the area so as not to be bitten, and keep children away until the matter is resolved; safety is important for both you and your pet.
Once your dog has been treated, and starts to feel a little better, they will appreciate the extra love. Until then give them space.
