Customer Question
He is limping and...

He is limping and scooting his butt on the floor a lot past 2 days

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

On one heel i did find redness and what looks like a small bump

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Could the anal glands being filled cause a dog to limp his name is ***** ***** pug are you a real person?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Yes, I'm a bot. I make the process of talking to the vet more efficient and affordable by asking basic questions. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

He is 6 years old and a pug. has been healthy. past year hes had anal gland issues, the vet drained his anal gland once which helped. he scoots his butt on the ground a ton and causes himself to almost bleed sometimes on his anus and scrotum.
