Customer Question

Hello, I have a 6 year old female terrier mix. pretty darn healthy. Weighs maybe 12lbs. Her poop is solid and she goes with regularity. Recently she has started to hump the side arm of her doggie bed as if to scratch herself. There is nothing obvious. Thank You for your help today.

Hello, I am Dr RB;-) Do you seen any redness of her belly on underside of her chest.. Any bumps or rashes that could rule in or rule out a possible skin allergy? If not, then this is typical sexual behavior and sounds to me like pretty normal behavior..most dogs, especially if they are not spayed or neutered will have the urge to "hump" soft object most especially when they are excited or get caught up in the moment lol..

Well, No redness and she has been spayed for about 4 yrs. I was thinking that maybe something internal of some sort. I have already checked into your answers, meaning i was already there. but poop is good, everything normal so maybe just very excited. Thanks so much. Jeff
