1- How long has this been going on?

2- Is she licking her butt?

3- Can you post a picture of her anus on this thread?

She is still acting the same, low energy but not lethargic. She usually has low energy the day after we go on a trip. She was out playing in the mountains yesterday so I’m not sure if that & the dust made it worse.

Can you take a picture raising her tail?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I will try but she tried nipping me earlier when I tried so I left her alone. It must be really sensitive for her to show her teeth at me. She would have never done that to me otherwise
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Friend, if she is biting do not try it; I don't want you getting hurt.

Okay. Sorry about that , she does not want me around her bottom
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Friend, in order to evaluate the area we would need to see it. So, I would recommend having her checked by your family veterinarian for a hands-on examination. In the meantime, I am going to opt out of the question so you are not charged. Thanks.

Dr. Peter
