Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 7 months ago.

It sounds like her anal glands may have expressed when she was dragging herself across the carpet. That is a typical response from a pet's body when dragging themselves on the carpet, ground, etc.

Hi. You answer me a question earlier in the week regarding change of food. Can this be related?

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 7 months ago.

Yes, I responded today to see how she was doing and did not hear back from you.

Anal glands being full and needing to be expressed is normal for animals. This is unlikely to be connected to her food consumption or change thereof.
