What are anal
Anal glands, or anal sacs, are
two small glands present in both dogs
and cats situated just below and either side of the anal
opening. These glands produce a substance that is
secreted through ducts just inside the rectum when
pressure is put on the glands- most commonly by the
passing of feces. This substance has a strong
odor which is very unpleasant to humans but was
probably useful to animals, especially in times gone by,
for marking their territory.
What can go
wrong with anal glands?
domestic pets, anal glands can often cause health
problems. Sometimes the anal gland secretions are not
released naturally and build up - leading to thickening
of the secretion, clogging of the duct

pressure and discomfort of impacted anal glands and is

occur and lead to an abscess. Your pet may
whimper or cry when attempting to defecate - this should
alert you to the possibility of infection. Abscesses can
also be extremely painful for your pet
and will require the attention of a vet and possibly
antibiotics to clear the infection. For this reason, it
is best to prevent complications as much as possible.
Prevention and treatment
Anal glands should be
regularly checked and expressed when necessary
in order to empty the build up of secretions from the
gland. This can be done by your vet, groomer or
even by you - getting the knack of this is not
difficult especially once you have been shown the
technique. To express your petís anal glands use your
fingers or a thumb and forefinger to gently apply
pressure on either side of the anal opening - on the
outside of the glands. Press inwards and upwards and you
should see the fluid being expressed.
A high-fiber diet,
as well as regular use of PetAlive Natural Moves for
