Customer Question

My 15 year old pug has been "air-humping" uncontrolably for the last couple days. Is this a health issue for him? He is not neutered. Thanks.

This could be a sign of irritation in his urinary tract. I would consider checking his prostate gland and doing a urinalysis to check for an infection in his bladder or prostate. I would also check his anal glands. Since we have to do a rectal exam to check the prostate, the anal glands are right there to be felt.
