Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Macy. How long has she been doing this rubbing her rear on the carpet? Is it mainly after going to the bathroom? Has she ever had her anal glands expressed? Are her stools firm and solid?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
A sour a year she does it at all times off the day and her glands are ax pressed at least once a month

Do you feel that her stools are normal? That is good that she's having her glands expressed once a month. After having them expressed, does it seem to help reduce the scooting?
