Warning: This post describes disgusting bodily functions. When I was starting veterinary school, I visualized myself as "the boy-wonder equine surgeon". Had I known how much of my life would be involved with anal sacs, I might well have made a different career choice. Sometimes people call them "anal glands" instead of "anal sacs". I believe this may be to avoid the aural confusion between "anal sacs" and "anal sex". Believe me, that is not nearly as funny as you think it is when it really happens in the exam room.

Dogs and cats both have these things. The actual anal glands are very tiny and surround the anus. Their secretions accumulate in the anal sacs. At the end of each bowel movement, the animal gives things one last squeeze and this empties a few drops from the sac. They fall freely and land on top of the waste-pile. The pheromones hormone-like chemicals act as a scent territorial marker. In skunks and ferrets, the anal sacs become more specialized as the main musk glands.

The skunk has a special expelling mechanism. The exception would be the large and frightened German Shepherd aka "anal glands with teeth". Any dog or cat experiencing an extreme "butt-pucker" moment like… looking at me may squirt the secretion onto the floor. The volume is more impressive when the Shepherd lets go. This is most common in dogs with generally poor muscle tone: very small dogs, very old dogs, and very fat dogs. This stretches the sacs, which creates pressure, which creates discomfort.

They are trying to empty the sacs and relieve that discomfort.

This NOT worms is the most common cause of butt-scooting. If the dog is very fat, this may require a rectal examination to complete. Sometimes the secretion gets thicker and harder over time, making it harder to empty.

Alas, this is a very common problem. Worst case scenario is rupture of the sac. This is a painful and nasty mess, but is generally salvageable.

Conservative care with warm compresses and antibiotics is often all that is required. Dogs who have continual or recurring problems can have the sacs surgically removed. They are not a necessary structure, as their only purpose is to provide a scent territorial marker. Our pets have their territories marked by the fences and sidewalks. They can get along without these sacs. One thing I failed to mention: this stuff stinks powerfully, much worse than mere feces. A few drops are supposed to last weeks outside. When the dog succeeds in squeezing a little out by scooting, it gets smeared on his hiney and you can smell him a mile away.

When it all gets emptied in one spot, it is mighty stinky. The last time I went to the vet he said my dogs glands were full and he emptied them. This was a couple months ago. Now she is scooting around and she also smells. Typically it will be worst when the stuff first comes out, but the smell can linger for hours.

The anal sacs could certainly have refilled in two months. The over-filling causes pressure, pressure causes discomfort, and the dog scoots on its rear in an effort to relieve the discomfort. I have always called itthe sour butt smell. Potent, yes. But pungent and sour and just nasty… ironically, I have always called it, the sour butt smell. Hello, Zodie, I would Sat 6pm dark haired Bordeaux chat random that you see your veterinarian on this. It would sound like the anal sacs, but they usually have a pungent odor.

I took my dog to my vet because he was having pain on his right hand flank area. He said that he believed it was probably anal glands issues. He did squeeze the glands. I think that you are asking two questions. The first being what to feed her to help with a normal bowel movement. Feed her regular food, but try adding some metamucil powder psyllium to each feeding 1 teaspoon per 20 pounds of body weight. The second is what to do about an infected anal sac. I would recommend a warm compress on the area three times daily.

Run a pan of water as warm as you can keep your hand in it comfortably. Use a clean cloth to apply heat to the area for 10 to 15 minutes, three times daily. These often need antibiotic treatment by mouthand sometimes they need to have medication infused directly into the sac. When my dog gets nervous, usually when someone enters the house, he lets go this awful smell. It usually lasts like 30 minutes. Its quite embarrassing when guest come over and they are greeted with this awful smell. Is there anything I can do about this besides having them removed?

Aside from trying to work with his nervousness a big taskI believe in your case you should invest in some deodorizer. Just wipe his anal area and the underside of his tail to get the odor under control sooner. Hi Doc. This time nothing changed though. Our two other male rescues are obsessed with him. The behavior of the 3 is out of control. Thank you! These are testicular tumors that secrete estrogen. If he is having constant problems with his anal sacs, then they can be surgically removed.

Got him back to the vet again today. Was given an antibiotic injection. Crossing my paws! Thanks for replying so quickly! Until then I have a bottle of odor neutralizer at the ready! I have a year old female morkey and she just had her period for the second time during that time I noticed that her anal area is puckered out and appears to be swollen. We just took her to the groomer and its still very puckered and swollen. She been sleeping a lot. What can I do to help her? If it looks abnormal to you, then the best thing would be to get an examination by your veterinarian.

We have taken him to the groomer and he still smells awful. He also appears to be bleeding or secreting excrement from his anus.

We have called the vet and they just recommended taking him to the groomer to get his anus squeezed. Could there be a bigger problem than his anal sacs being full? The anal sacs can become infected, needing treatment with systemic i. There is also a condition called perianal fistula. I would call your veterinarian and tell them that you followed their advice, but you are still having problems and would like to bring your dog in for an examination.
