Anal sacs: a new approach to an old problem? | Veterinary Practice
Anal sac disease is the most common disease entity of the anal region in dogs. Small breeds are predisposed; large or giant breeds are rarely affected. In cats, the most common form of anal sac disease is impaction. Anal sacs may become impacted, infected, abscessed, or neoplastic. Failure of the sacs to express during defecation, poor muscle tone in obese dogs, and generalized seborrhea which produces glandular hypersecretion lead to retention of sac contents. Such retention may predispose to bacterial overgrowth, infection, and inflammation. Signs are related to pain and discomfort associated with sitting.

Anal Sac Disease
They're not the stuff of dinner party conversations, but knowing how to spot a problem could save your dog a lot of misery. Picture the scene. You've just washed your dog from top to tail using the finest shampoo and conditioner money can buy, but even after drying him, the same horrible fishy odour you noticed pre-groom is still lingering in your poor nostrils.
The literature about the anal sacs of healthy dogs and the pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of anal sac impaction and sacculitis are reviewed. Knowledge about the physiological role of the anal sacs is still confusing. The colour and consistency of the anal sac contents are variable in healthy dogs and there are no pathognomonic signs of anal sac impaction or sacculitis.
