Customer Question

Hi Sally,
Approx 2.5 year old black lab mix female rescue about 42 pounds suffering from seperation anxiety. Been with her 'forever home' since mid July and getting familiar with our schedule. Had previously suffered from heart worm and tape worm.
Visited Vet 3 days ago for segments in her stool. She was wormed and tape worm exited and her stool has been normal since. Corrie has always exhibited dragging on her belly from time to time apparently to feel cool. This morning however she has been whimpering and dragging. Been staying close to me apparently trying to give me a message. No sign of redness.

hello an thank you for requesting me .

So she drags her belly around ?

Can she walk and is choosing to drag the belly?

Have you taken her temperature?

Does she seem to be wanting to drag to scratch the vaginal area?
