Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about Spanky's situation. Is he eating and drinking normally? Is he able to walk normally? Is he as active and energetic during the day as normal?
That is good that Spanky is able to walk normally. It is also good that he's as active and energetic during the day. Do you feel he can run and jump as normal as usual? Sometimes the warm weather can play a factor in behavior.
That is great that he can run and jump just fine. Allergy problems typically show as skin issues with irritation / itchiness. They will typically chew at their paws as a very common sign of it. As far as being sensitive at his back region, do you see any changes with the skin there? Is he scooting more?
That is good that there are no skin changes there. Also good that there aren't any signs of fleas and there is no scooting. If he was scooting more, then an anal gland issue could be at hand and that may be helped by having them expressed. As far as him being sensitive there, could he have some very mild back discomfort or hip issues? This would be more suspect if he wasn't playing, running and jumping as normal. Could this be something temporary? What I'd be watching for are lesions / issues with the skin in that area, not getting around / playing as well, or him getting more depressed. These would be potential signs of this getting more progressed.
