Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Canine health. I would like to ask some questions to better assist you. Please d not rate my service until I have given you a answer.
Can you see any swelling around the anal opening?
Have you ever had her Anal Glands Expressed?
Is she scooting on the floor?
Is she passing normal stools?
I suspect what you are seeing may be an Anal gland issue. The glands are located inside and outside the anal opening and if the internal glands are not fully expressed this can cause a problem like what you are describing. The licking te floor is a sign usually of nausea. I usually suggest having the Vet express the glands, so they are completely done. Once they are set I also suggest that the dog get Canned Pumpkin in with meals. This helps with the stool passing and usually helps for the glands to naturally express with bowel movements. I would have Maizy in and have her anal glands checked, because the signs of an anal gland seems to be the problem.
