Are you available to discuss this situation online at this time? (if you get a phone call prompt from the system, please disregard as I am unable to do a phone call at this time).
***************

Is she licking and rubbing her bottom on the ground?

Is she up to date with tummy worms?

Has she had anal gland problems before?

What sort of eggs are you talking about? raw or cooked or chocolate!? :)

to some bum licking.
We have chickens.
Some times Raw 1 a day, sometime hard boiled, 1 a day. My son did give her a few more recently.
Dogs are on Bravecto, every three months, and The advanced trifecta(the one that also expels chicken worms), I forget the name. We give it monthly is the Worm medication / no problems before. Just this last couple weeks.
We are very clean living people. Take really good care of our critters, supplements, taste of the wild food.
