For the last month or so, one of my dogs has started dragging his rear end on the floor with regularity. I'm pretty sure these sacs around the anus are causing him irritation, but have any dog owners here had the same problem? If so, did you do anything to stop it? I know my vet in the past has emptied the sacs, although I'm a little leery of doing this myself...mostly because I'm afraid of hurting the dog. He's never had a problem with this up until now. In addition to trying to get him feeling better, I'd feel much better myself to come home and not find any skid marks on the furniture slipcovers either.
