Anal gland removal : a simple surgical solution for dog scooting

Removing Anal Gland from Dogs

It’s a behaviour that all pet parents dread: dog scooting. Your dog dragging his bottom across the floor while sitting is a sign of discomfort, often linked to anal gland problems, allergies or irritation. For the comfort of your dog, anal gland removal is sometimes the solution.

Common Causes of Scooting:

Dogs may scoot for three main reasons:

Worms: Roundworms, whipworms, and tapeworms can lead to discomfort and scooting. We recommend all-wormer products like Drontal or Milpro for effective treatment.

Allergies: Dietary allergies or contact allergies from grassy areas can trigger itchiness, leading to scooting.

Anal Glands: Full or infected anal glands can be sore, prompting dogs to rub their bottom on the floor to alleviate discomfort.

The Benefits of Anal Sac Removal:

Pain Relief: Anal gland issues can cause immense pain and discomfort for your pet. Anal Sac Removal offers immediate relief, allowing your pet to move, sit, and walk without the agony they might have previously experienced.
