blog of day;
sues, and extreme discomfort in the dog’s rectum. The dog tries to expel the enlarged anal sacs and rubs his rectum along the ground. (Rubbing the tail along the ground is not always a sign of worms!) The commonest symptom of anal-sac trouble is licking or biting at the anus.
If there is no infection present, the veterinarian can treat blocked or distended sacs by exerting gentle pressure so that the secretion is expressed. In dogs who have constant trouble, periodic expression of the sacs is necessary every 2 to 6 months. I advise you to ask your veterinarian to show you how to empty these glands. Foods that act as roughage, such as bran cereals, are good for keeping the glands open. If the glands become chronically infected, I advise surgical removal.
