Analdrüsenprobleme beim Hund – Ein delikates Thema

Anal gland problems in dogs – a delicate topic

4 minutes

Anal gland problems can be quite uncomfortable for dogs and can be a sensitive issue for dog owners. These small glands play a crucial role in dogs' communication behavior, but they can also lead to pain and infections. Here you will find out what you need to know about your dog's anal glands and how to best deal with problems.

Function of the anal glands

Anal glands are located on both sides of the dog's anus and secrete an odorous fluid that is used for territorial marking and identification among dogs. Normally, this fluid is released with each bowel movement.

Identify common problems

Common problems with the anal glands include blockages, inflammation or abscesses. Signs of this can include: slipping on the bottom, licking or biting around the anus, an unpleasant smell or visible swelling around the anus.

Proper care and prevention

Regularly checking and emptying the anal glands as needed can help prevent problems. A healthy diet with sufficient fiber supports good intestinal function, which in turn promotes natural emptying of the glands.

Dealing with anal gland inflammation

If there are signs of blockage or inflammation of the anal glands, you should consult a veterinarian who can express the glands professionally and treat the inflammation if necessary. Never attempt to empty the anal glands yourself as this can cause injury.

Long-term care for chronic problems

Some dogs are prone to regular anal gland problems. In such cases, individual management is required, which may include regular veterinary checks, an adjusted diet and possibly medication.

Expert advice is essential

If problems with the anal glands occur frequently or are severe, it is advisable to consult a veterinarian. In some cases, surgical removal of the anal glands may even be necessary to prevent chronic pain or recurring infections.

Conclusion: Pay attention to the anal glands

  • Anal glands perform an important communicative function, but can lead to problems.
  • Pay attention to the signs that indicate problems with the anal glands.
  • Regular check-ups and a diet rich in fiber are the best preventive measures.
