Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Is he scooting more then usual?
Any changes around his rectum (ie subtle swellings, sores, ulcers, redness)?
Does he turn to his back end quickly (as if pinched) or does his running appear as if he is trying to get away from his backside?
Is it only his side he is itching?
