Customer Question
Buddy will continually...

Buddy will continually roll over and try to rid himself of something bothering his back side . He does not drag his butt , just squirm on his back side rear end. I have examined him and I can't find any sign of foreign creatures or skin eruptions but it is continual at ever 2 to 4 hours hours intervals .

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?

Buddy is 8 years old , well behaved , active .

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Buddy?

His mate is female , both have acces to back yard , little exposure to other dogs .
