It's Time to Leave Your Dog's Anal Gland Problems Behind.

Anal gland problems affect millions of pets and are a very common and frustrating problem. Anal gland issues arise when the anal glands of dogs and cats becoming over-filled, blocked, or irritated. All dogs and cats have these two small glands (sometimes referred to as anal sacs) near the anal opening that typically release a few drops of scent marking fluid whenever your pet defecates. If the anal glands fill up excessively it creates pressure which can be very uncomfortable for your dog or cat.
