Tip on Anal Gland Problems in Cats

The anal glands are small scent glands that sit on each side of the rectum. They can become clogged or abscessed in some cats although it is a more common problem in dogs. Signs of problems include: pain, scooting, and constant licking. If anal glands are not a problem for your cat, we suggest that you leave them alone.
