The Importance of Gland Cleaning
Protect the Dog's Health
Most of the time a dog’s anal gland looks after itself. However, in cases where they don’t empty properly, they can swell up and cause considerable discomfort to a dog. This is why assistance in expressing the dog’s anal gland becomes important. Our dog groomers offer a full gland cleaning with every dog grooming.
A swollen anal gland is a perfect environment for bacteria to spread which can lead to an infection if not treated. We always recommend regular dog anal gland cleaning to stop an infection before it happens.
Improve the overall dog comfort
Swollen anal glands can cause significant discomfort to a dog. They can sometimes stop the dog being able to sit and in extreme cases can make walking difficult.

Why do you need to express a dog’s anal gland?
Sometimes a dog’s anal gland does not empty properly, leading to a build-up and swelling which is quite uncomfortable for the dog. Unexpressed anal gland build-ups can lead to serious infections which is why it’s important to have a dog’s anal gland regularly cleaned during a grooming.
