All About Anal Glands

What exactly are the anal glands in the dog and cat? : The anatomy of the area is that the anal glands consist two sacks under the skin and in the muscle of the anal region, they are connected to the surface by two very short ducts which emerge very close to the anus itself. In large breeds you might be able to see the duct openings but they are normally hard to spot by the untrained eye. The anal gland sacs are filled with a viscous dark fluid with a distinctive smell.

Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease. (FLUTD)

Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease. (FLUTD)

This disease is one which cat owners can get dramatically wrong if they try and sort things on a home remedy basis. They see their cats are straining in the litter tray and naturally assume that the poor cat is constipated and accordingly try the likes of liquid paraffin { Also called mineral oil }, orally. But beware, sometimes this does not work because the cat had a blocked bladder instead of constipation and the time lost in getting to a vet could well be critical as kidney failure can be a consequence.

The Dachshund Dog Breed, The Sausage Dog!

The Dachshund Dog Breed, The Sausage Dog!

Everybody loves this comical breed, you cannot help but smile when you see one moving along in their characteristic style … The Sausage Dog. They are of course one of the group of dogs which have German origins, this is borne out in the two words in the name dachs hund which literally means “badger dog” in German. Now you would be forgiven in wondering how the average Dachshund you see in the street could possibly tackle a badger it would seem much more likely that the badger would chase away the Dachshund! The answer of course is that most Dachshunds you see are Miniature Dachshunds and there is a standard variety which is very much larger and could well take on a badger and win.
