Anal Gland Expression


Your dog uses glands located near their anus to expresses scent. In most cases, fluid from these glands is expressed naturally during eliminations. However, some dogs will build up an excess of fluid from time to time and require help to express it. Signs that your dog may need to have their glands expressed are scooting, holding their tail down, reluctance to walk, etc. Our technicians can gently and safely express the glands to help relieve associated discomfort.
