If you’ve seen your dog scooting across the room on his bottom, it could be a sign of anal sac disease.
Dogs have two small pouches on either side of their anus. They make a smelly, oily, brown fluid that dogs use to identify each other and mark their territory. It’s why they often sniff each other’s behinds.
Anal sac disease begins as an uncomfortable impaction and can progress to an infection or abscess.
