Lighthouse Veterinary Clinic Anal Glands
When the anal glands are overactive or affected, issues arise. Swollen, itchy, and even infected anal glands can develop in your pet if they are unable to produce feces on a regular basis to express them. Some animals require aid in expressing their anal glands. At Animals R Special, our team can assist by manually expressing them during a brief office procedure. By doing this, you can lessen irritation and avoid infection. Every 4 to 8 weeks, pets with anal gland issues frequently require physical expression of the glands.
