Customer Question
I have a 3.5...

I have a 3.5 year old deaf female greyhound. There is brownish stuff around her anus-have been cleaning her daily but it reoccurs. Occasionally she will "go after" her butt area with a vengeance. This also smells yucky. Any ideas?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

Sadie

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

She has incontinence at times and is on Proin 75mg daily and Prozac 20 mg daily.

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. Are her stools normal? This might be discharge from her anal glands if her stools are normal. I would recommend taking her in to the vet to have them expressed to be sure they are not infected. There is a good supplement for their anal glands called Glandex, which can help with anal gland health in the future. I will attach information about this product below.
