Sometimes dogs (more so than cats) emit a foul-smelling odour from their anal glands, usually when they defecate.
In dogs, when these glands are full they cause discomfort. So dogs that chew their bottoms or the base of their tail, or scoot along the ground are usually giving a telltale sign that they need their anal glands expressed.
Anal glands can become infected or burst if not treated. In some cases we surgically remove them.
Our nurses can express normal glands; however, a veterinary appointment is necessary if they’re infected or inflamed.
If you’re one of our many satisfied clients, please consider referring us.
Just ask your friend to mention your pet’s name when they book. As our client, you’ll receive a $25 voucher from us, to come off your pet’s next consultation or spend on products available in our reception – and so will your friend!
