Term Definition
Anal Glands

Small sacs located on either side of the anus that carry the Dog's scent and used to identify themselves and mark their territory. In most Dogs, the sacs are normally drained during daily bowel movements. If the Dog's stool is soft, the sacs may not empty on a regular basis and can remain full to cause pain or discomfort. When you see a Dog scooting his rump along the grass, it may be because of discomfort from full anal glands. Sacs may have to be manually drained by your veterinarian, but adjusting the diet to produce firm stools may help drain the sacs on their own.
